The capital of Malasia, Kuala Lumpur hosted a special exhibition that brings calligraphers from different parts of the world to the city. Organized in the Museum of Islamic Arts, the exhibition is open for 6 months. Being one of the most prominent exhibitions in the world, the preparations for the event in Kuala Lumpur lasted eight years.
The coordinator of the exhibition, Seyid Iskender, expressed his joy by saying that this kind of large-scale organization related to calligraphy has taken place for the first time in Malaysia.
"This the first time in this country. The exhibition consists of pieces of art in different styles of calligraphy. The main source of inspiration for this exhibition is the Qur'an. You can also find some signs of late poets."
Having different interpretations and styles, the works of calligraphers are often inspired by nature. The sense of infinity, cosmic orientation and cultural perceptions stands at the center of the event.
Fuad Kouichi Honda from Japan, Haji Nurdin from China, Naja Mahdui from Tunisia, Semih Ismail from Egypt and Ali Ajali from Iran attended the exhibition along with five other artists from North Africa and Suadi Arabia.
The pieces that focus on modern interpretations of traditional styles drew much attention. One of the examples of this perspective is represented by a Saudi calligrapher who was inspired by the designs of carpets.
