Get ready for Round Two of the dedicated digital experience celebrating
the inspirational words of Muhammad Ali, with the participation of calligrapher
Niels Shoe Meulman
‘Niels Shoe Meulman: Painter’ Book is an avalanche of visual poetry and poetic visuals,
in which alert readers will find a story about an artist who rejected being called an artist,
who ran several design and advertising studios, then invented the new art form Calligraffiti
and became a globetrotting painter after all. After the worldwide success of his first book,
‘Calligraffiti: The Graphic Art of Niels Shoe Meulman (2010)’, the artist and his co-author
Adam Eeuwens take his bold venture to a place where street art meets abstract expressionism.
Messing up book sections. Again. ‘Calligraffiti’ gained followers within graphic design, architecture,
typography, advertising, calligraphy and graffiti. Sharing an interest in the visual arts and an appreciation
for print, they came to understand that a word is an image. In this volume Niels Shoe Meulman expands
his ever-evolving artistic territory to include wild paintings and fine art, this time around in vivid full color.
