Description: Artwork by Osman Wagialla. Osman Wagialla (1925-2007) graduated from the School of Design, Gordon Memorial College, Khartoum, in 1945. He then studied at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts in London, UK, and after this studied calligraphy in Cairo under the master Sayyid Muhammed Ibrahim. After completing his studies, Wagialla moved back to Sudan in the early 1950s, where he taught at the College of Fine and Applied Art of the Sudan University of Science and Technology. Wagialla is one of the founders of the Arabic Hurufiyya and the Khartoum School art movements. Many of his students in Sudan, such as Shibrain, El-Salahi and Taj el-Sir Ahmed, joined him in the task of creating a new Sudanese modernist art movement. Rather than letters, Wagialla relied in his works on texts (Quranic and poetic), seeing that form and content are inseparable parts of Arabic writing, and defining Arabic calligraphy as the art of ‘fourth dimension’. His works are included among the collections of many international institutions of art. Wagialla died in 2007.
