Tariq Ramadan Tribute T-shirt + iPhone cover

You can't be Tariq Ramadan. But Tariq Ramadan can be you - with this exclusive MVAC #SKIN5 tribute series Tariq Ramadan t-shirt and Tariq Ramadan iPhone 5 cover. Ramadan is known as the son of Said Ramadan and Wafa Al-Bana, who was the eldest daughter of Hassan al Banna, who in 1928 founded the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The Egyptian-Swiss academician is also a professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Oriental Studies at Oxford University. Ramadan emphasizes a Muslim's responsibility to his community, whether it be Islamic or not. He criticizes the 'us vs. them' mentality that some Muslims advocate against the West. He also advocates having Muslim scholars in the West who are versed in Western mores, and not relying on religious studies that come only from the Islamic world.

MVAC is honored to have Ramadan as our choice personality in our design tribute series. Do stay tuned for more and check out our store at

Arabic Calligraphy Workshop, Esplanade Singapore by Faizal Somadi

MVAC is proud to announce our trainer & close friend, Bro Faizal Somadi in his debut Esplanade art appearance, Arabic Calligraphy Workshop to be held at Esplanade Upper Concourse on 27th-29th April 2012. Bro Faizal has been a dedicated and active contributor for MVAC (formerly known as the Mediterranean Visual Arts Club) in numerous arts outreach programme such as the Khat Jam session on 3rd-4th April 2010 and the Aksara Calligraffiti Workshop held at National Library, Victoria Street.

Arabic Calligraphy Workshop
by Faizal Somadi
27 Apr 2012, Fri, 7 - 9pm
28 & 29 Apr 2012, Sat & Sun, 4 - 9pm
Esplanade Upper Concourse

Bro Faizal has been involved in calligraphy since the age of 10, mastering the Latin script first before venturing into Arabic. He is the grandchild of the late Ustaz Ahmad Sonhadji, a religious scholar, and had consulted in his grandfather in matters concerning religion as well as spiritual aesthetics and social issues. In 2005, he received his professional training in Malaysia by Tuan Syed Mahdar Al-Shahab and an art mentor, Tuan Saheh Mokhta before working with Iskandar Jalil, a renowned potter in arts demonstration. He was also actively providing khat (arabic calligraphy) training with MVAC in the period of 2006-2008. Bro Faizal had produced numerous calligraphic artworks bearing the initials M.V.A.C under his pet project entitled Khattograffia. These artworks can be viewed in MVAC Facebook photo album page

It was little known to many people that, Bro Faizal and MVAC worked hard in delivering khat & calligraphy workshops during a time when the art is somewhat forgotten. Often with little sponsorship, Bro Faizal with the MVAC team would used their own pocket money to spend on art materials such as calligraphic pen markers and papers to be used in workshops. Remy Mahzam, one of MVAC's activist also ensured that proper venue and equipments were utilized during the execution of any arts session. There were several occasions when special tools were being sourced out, such as a traditional black chalkboard and transparency projector, specifically to be used by the delicate artist himself to deliver an exceptional, engaging workshop. Workshops were mostly conducted free of charge or with little cost to capture the general public's participation.

With the above illustrated humble beginnings, the MVAC team share Bro Faizal's sentiments and truly endorse his Esplanade's appearance in April 2012. We were touched to learn that Bro Faizal quoted us in his artist biography on the official event website:
