Veteran Calligrapher to Display 50 Years of Work

Veteran calligrapher Yadollah Kaboli-Khansari, 68, will put on display 100 of his works created in the past 50 years.
The exhibition in Tehran is titled ‘Sama in Sama,’ referring to the Sufi ceremony Sama that involves singing, playing instruments, whirling, praying and poetry recitation. The event is slated for November 24-December 11 at Gooya House of Art and Culture located at No. 89, Karim Khan Avenue, Mehr News Agency reported.
Kaboli is a member of the board of trustees of the Society of Iranian Calligraphers. He is a recipient of First Degree Art Certificate issued by the Evaluation Council of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance. He has held international shows in London, Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Paris, New York, Dubai, Rome and Madrid.
“I selected 100 works from among my oeuvre in the past 50 years. The exhibit will also feature calligraphies I created in recent months. The works are based on the poems and writings of some contemporary poets and scholars. They are written in various compositions and layouts,” Kaboli-Khansari said.
Most of the calligraphic works are considered classical, and are adorned with classical illuminations, he added.
His innovative works are in the style of contemporary Shekasteh (broken) Nastaliq, also known as Cursive Nastaliq.
The exhibit also offers a book published two years ago by Gooya Publications containing a selection of the artist’s works. His other publications include ‘Broken Script and How to Read It’, ‘A Guidebook on the Broken Script’, ‘Kelk-Sheydaee’, ‘Quatrains of Baba Taher’ and three collections of choice works namely ‘Mehrab-Khial’, ‘Bagh-Nazar’ and ‘Naqsh-Showq’.
The opening ceremony is on Nov. 24 at 4 pm. On the following days, Gooya House will admit visitors from 10 am to 8 pm.
