All you can see at the III International Exhibition of Calligraphy. Part II

Calligraphy is not just a way to say words, it is a manner to reflect them in an emotional form. Some calligraphers manage to depict this with the help of colors and drawings, others tend to use expressive and concise lines.

It is interesting that the Arabian calligraphy is full of colors and patterns. One of the brightest examples is the work of Hassan Makaremi “The Flower on the Cathedral”.

Another good example of a calligraphic drawing is a highly emotional and picturesque work called the Symphony in the Name of Allah written by Jamshed Qaisar from Pakistan.

Sometimes you can deliver the full meaning with the help of a text, with no drawings or patterns. The work called “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” by Werner Schneider fantastically communicated the sense of despair and commotion of the spirits.

One of the works from the sacred collection of calligraphy was created by Claudio Gil from Brazil. In his work he depicted Agnus dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis, being a common prayer of the catholic church, which is read before the blessed ordinance in most cases. His work is a very interesting example blending a text and a drawing with their mutual expressive impulse.

Another art piece from the sacred calligraphic collection is completely different in its style. It is called “Blessed Be Those Who…” created by Bas Vlam.
