Other featured works are by calligrapher Gholam Hussein Amirkhani, 78, pioneer of modern Persian calligraphy Mohammad Jalil Rasouli, 70, master of ‘Thuluth’ and ‘Naskh’ scripts Abdolsamad Haj Samadi, 68, and Yadollah Kaboli Khansari, 68, who is a member of the board of trustees at the Society of Iranian Calligraphers and also a recipient of First Degree Art Certificate.

Transcendental or visionary art isn’t so much a movement as it is a theme. The style of the individual artists may vary radically, but their common theme is the same – to portray the world beyond physical sight and to overlap mystical and spiritual ideas.
