Amsterdam (Holland) - The graphic and typographic design work of Lebanese-Dutch designer Tarek Atrissi will be exhibited at the De Levante Foundation in Amsterdam, the leading institute for Oriental Culture and Arts in the Netherlands, from 2 May - 22 June 2008.

The exhibition will feature a varied selection of Tarek Atrissi's work developed over the last ten years in Lebanon, New York, Dubai, Qatar and The Netherlands, for commercial and non-commercial projects & commissions around the world. The graphic design work displayed will include posters, visual identities, typographic and calligraphic work as well as interactive design work, a selection of work which is often distinguished by a strong cross cultural flavor and often described as a modern Arabic graphic design language.

Beirut-born Tarek Atrissi is one of the most recognised Arab designers in the world and is the recipient of several international prestigious design awards. His work is precise, elegant and often typographically driven, and has played a visible role in cultural image making, particularly across the Arab world and in Holland, where he runs his design studio.

The last few years in Holland have witnessed a great interest in cross cultural design work which became a reflection of the ever changing multi-cultural society of the Netherlands, and which is considered by many to be the new cosmopolitan face of Dutch design.
