Arabic calligrapher explains his art

It takes years of training and practice to become an Arabic calligrapher.

Calligraphy's associations with the Koran, the Muslim Holy book, mean it is an important and well regarded art form in much of the Middle East.

Abdulaziz Awad Alrashidi, who has been refining his skills since childhood, explains why he has devoted his life to the art.
