Le Nuage “The cloud” latest interior calligraphy for Philippe Starck

Over a month ago, I was invited by the legendary designer Philippe Starck and his team to decorate the interior walls of the new building called “Le Nuage” (‘The Cloud’), which is located at Montpellier in France. The building is a unique and innovative architecture – an enveloping, inflatable membrane in the form of a cloud, from which it takes its name. The interior calligraphy project included calligraphic works in each of the five floors of the building. The interior calligraphy mural lasted 12 days and I worked on it more than 18 hours each day.

“Thank you Philippe Starck for choosing me to embellish with my calligraphy your unique building in France. I will always remember your words. ‪#‎Respect‬…”

The new Urban Calligraphy film “Lucid Dream” online now!

“Lucid Dreaming” is an act of rebellion. The dreamer gains control over his actions and thoughts. The subconscious becomes conscious, dreams become a memory.

The Lucid Dreamer is like a magician, imposing willpower and constantly struggling with himself, to master his skills and gain full control of the dream, thus becoming the ruler of the maze instead of a single puppet in the paradox black hole of perception.

In life, in creation, there are times that everything seems pointless and dark. Shadows of doubt are casted upon each and every soul, trying to bring them down and enslave them.

But Simon knows and likes to remind us in this calligraphy film, that gaining control of your actions, gaining control of your life, these are the first steps of making your dreams come true.
