The paper considers Arabic calligraphy as part of the contemporary 
Syrian art, exceptional in the form and content, which puts forward 
principles based on cultural heritage and national identity. The 
paper traces the dialectics of the relationship between Arabic cal-
ligraphy and plastic arts. Four artistic trends in the contemporary 
art of Syria were determined, which either rely on the traditional 
style or develop independent principles of the “Arabic writing”. 
Keywords: calligraphy in visual arts, Syria, Arabic writing, contemporaneity.
