New Calligraphy Style by Young Students

A group calligraphy exhibition displaying the talent of young art students creating artworks through a so-called newly invented Persian script style ‘Kereshmeh’ is underway at Aqili Art Gallery in Tehran.
First introduced by veteran artist Ahmad Ariamanesh, the new style bears unique features of elegant Iranian art portraying “a soul in the letterings through extreme curves and edges,” reports ISNA.
An introduction to the exhibition says: “Kereshmeh is a dance festival of letters, revealing the essence of Iranian culture and literature, which has always promoted joy and beauty. It seeks to be another representative of the rich Iranian art, combined with love, joy and purity.”
Mahshid Arbab Zadeh, Reza Khalil Abadi, Maliheh Seif Abadi, Mona Fereidouni, Hamedeh Mashiati, Saman Momeni, Zeinab Babaei and Saeideh Chehr Azad are among the first generation of ‘Kereshmeh’ calligraphy style, whose works are on show.
The exhibition will run through January 7 at the gallery, located at No. 12, Farvardin Alley, 5th St., Simaye Iran Ave., Shahrak-e Gharb neighborhood.  
Ahmad Ariamanesh, 47, created the Persian fonts ‘Kereshmeh’ (1992) and ‘Safir’ (2006), several centuries after the introduction of ‘Nastaliq’ and ‘Shekasteh Nastaliq’, (literally broken Nastaliq) in the 8th and 9th centuries, traditionally known as the predominant styles in Persian calligraphy.
His works are divided in two genres of modern and traditional. Ariamanesh has founded a calligraphy training institute and taught his styles in many workshops. He has held numerous exhibitions and won prizes for his creativity.
