Yali Hajhassan is a self-taught artist interested in Arabic calligraphy. Her early fascination with Arabic calligraphy started at the age of 9 by practising the Al Ruqʿah script. However, it was not until 17 that she continuously committed to experimenting and practising calligraphy. The past ten years she spent improving her calligraphy skills have been a great beginning of an even greater chapter of this extraordinary Journey. Yali holds a BA in psychology which had a great influence in shaping her understanding of life which -in turn- has been reflected in her artworks. Her passion for literature and especially Arabic poetry has always been present in her artworks as she is keen to bring out the charm of poetry using calligraphy. Her goal is to offer others the chance to see how beautiful poetry is through calligraphy, which she usually describe as "Music to the eyes". Yali has participated in the online version of IAAF (Istanbul Art and Antique Fair), IAAF that took place in Istanbul in November 2021. She was also the winner of the public choice award IMMIX 2021, an international exhibition organized by Exihibizone, a Canadian Art Venue.
