The work is an Arabic calligraphy taking the form of a geometric composition. Although rare for the artist, there is a calligraphic message and the translation is as follows: "The greatest poverty is that of ignorance". The labyrinth effect created by the geometry of the letters is also reminiscent of the video game PACMAN, hence the artist's deliberate addition of the game's famous characters. It is a nod to his childhood.

RamZ is the author of a contemporary Arabic calligraphy that reflects his dual culture, marked by multiple influences and skillfully drawing on tradition to move towards the new. With a very modern and urban touch, the artist forges and sculpts forms and symbols that interpret words. Is it by chance that in Arabic, the root of the first name "Ramzi" means "symbol"? His works bear witness to the fusion between Arabic calligraphy and contemporary art, to the symbiosis between two cultures, between two worlds, East and West. He insists on the fact that each of us is capable of reading calligraphy, even if we do not read Arabic. "Over time, my works have become abstract because I no longer feel the need to be read, it is the language of each person's sensibility and free interpretation that prevails. When I discovered Arabic calligraphy, I could neither read nor write in the language and yet the attraction was omnipresent". The reading of a calligraphy is above all a journey of the eye through lines, angles, patterns and their arrangement.
