Ufa Artists Demonstrate Their Calligraphic Skill

Vasil Khannanov and Salavat Ghilyazetdinov from Ufa have taken part in the 3rd International Exhibition of Calligraphy among one hundred and fourteen artists from forty states. This time it was held in Veliky Novgorod and organized by the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy collecting everyone and everything connected with the art of beautiful handwriting and its artistic expression and comprehension.

Every participant displayed two/three of his/her paintings. “No doubt all of them calligraphic works,” said Vasil. “Thirty-six artists conducted master-classes, including Salavat and myself. My speech was entitled “The Theory of Disintegration of the Universe. Back to Habitual Faith”, and Salavat’s – “Beautiful Female Names in Arabic Calligraphy”. He was taking any name, e.g. Daria, and showed how the Arabic script could turn it in a flower or a petal, etc.”

The 4th International Exhibition of Calligraphy is planned to be held in Paris, in September 2011. The Ufa artists said they had already received an invitation.
