The best world calligraphers to be exhibited in Moscow
The 2nd International Exhibition of Calligraphy has been launched in Moscow. It will last for one month with renowned artists and calligraphers from thirty-three countries participating.
“Calligraphy is painting with letters, the mystery of symbols and signs, and the reflection of thoughts, image, and personality.” And the calligraphic works of art distributed in the exhibition space of 5 000 sq m prove that. AdMe.ru simply couldn’t miss the event which is profoundly important for the advertising industry as a whole.
