About Soraya

Soraya Syed Sanders is a classically trained calligrapher and artist of growing international renown.

Born in London, Syed studied at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design before going on to read Arabic and History of Art & Archaeology at SOAS. It was during her year abroad in Egypt that she discovered the art of Islamic calligraphy.

Her work has been exhibited and collected all over the world and she is the first Briton to receive the rarely bestowed icazetname or calligrapher’s license from Istanbul, Turkey.

She pushes the boundaries of this traditional art form and has received commissions from the likes of Google, the British Museum and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
