April 2020: Mohamed Hammam has passed away. Despite the sadness, we will remember her complex and sparkling personality. We will preciously keep the imprint of the loved and curious person of others. We want to pay homage to the one who will remain a great figure of Egyptian calligraphy and especially to the one who fully embraced life.
