He is the spirit what I called Media Exchange, he was a dedicated sports man with Academica background but still he is an artist. Decorates the street of Abu dhabi with his golden fingers, his graphic designs what makes him especial? This interview will reveal the truth behind the reality of the artist Ahmed Al Sadik, that is the way he wants to be named. The truly Ahmed, his real name is Ahmed Al Sadik Aldrawy born in Alshaqea in Eqypt. He is a sportsman and a coach, a boxer and a teacher, he left his career and found his potential contribution in art in his humble way of doing, pointing to us his work Arabic decorated calligraphy, he gives an Arabic identity to the city of Abu Dhabi?
My arts is not only calligraphy but also making figures in calligraphy likes shapes of stars and flowers, the falcon of UAE symbol of power is also many used in my creations, of course computers offer a lot more opportunities but the basic still my pen and my creative mind. You could have earned a lot of money in football but after your academic degree in body sports science, yes true but art is my thing to, money is not so important to me? Very often you do work for royalties without your knowledge who you are. Do you mind, no its an honor to me, but my art to me is most important, my only hope and wish- es that the history will once recognize my art?
logo like the one for Emirates Diyar, would you please explain us, he loves, my skills has no boarders, as an athletic man creating is also a physical talent, he loves again but my opportunities has to be fond to the media of course are used the computers and the illustrating, can i first go on a personal matter, so you are leading a simple life, but I also notice you are a very proud person, what is the secret. Every Artist must have a proud and must be proud, what is your message to the world.
I saw your creations they are stunning and beautiful, creating logos for companies are creating identities. People are mostly proud of my work makes me happy, but I wish one day everybody knows me as an artists. I saw recently beautiful work of calligraphy Arabic hanging on a wall like few kilometers but no ones knows who you are humble as he is, he answers, one day everybody will know.
Calligraphy is art, originally I paint always did, I have to thank my father who taught me this, we have to keep this alive because this is our Arabic identity, for instances Emirates Diyar is using my logos, restaurants, hotel very often, identity cards, and profiles gives identity, calligraphy and arabic writing is my identity. If you see the Quran is also one book of art change many lives where is context, I hope people can appreciate and enjoy my work, and the history books will recognize my existing as recognize artist.
