Contemporary Exhibition by the Iranian Calligrapher Ali Shirazi in Dubai

Total Arts at the Courtyard in Dubai is holding a preview of Improvisation for Shirazi on Monday 18th April 2011.

 

 

By:  Iqbal Tamimi

Shirazi is known as the best scripter of Nastaliq style of calligraphy in the region. Calligraphy in his practice is instantaneous, spontaneous and expressive.

 

Ali Shirazi, was born in 1960 in Shiraz. He practiced calligraphy since 1974 and after receiving the “Distinction " certificate from the Iranian Calligraphy Society, Shirazi worked for a while as the Head of Esfahan Calligraphy Society and immigrated to Tehran in the year 1988 where he was elected as the member of the high council of the Iranian Calligraphy Society

Mastering classical calligraphy for over 35 years had given Ali Shirazi the skill to break boundaries by exploring new means to fulfil his creative desires.

Rapid yet accomplished gesture of his hand and body, the soft movement of his pen with ink, the highlights in his lines and unpredictability in his compositions are what make his art unique.

He first demonstrated his improvisation style in a series of Calligraphy- paintings in 1994 and once again returned to Calligraphy- paintings/ improvisation style in 2008, which resulted in an exhibition of 20 artworks in Pardis Mellat Gallery in Tehran in 2010.

Shirazi sees his new artworks continuation of Siyah Mashq (doodling), in a way of practicing by repeating letters, words and sentences over and over again to excel in writing.

Having exhibited in Total Arts Gallery in several occasions in the past, he is back with his new collection of large pieces of contemporary Persian and Arabic calligraphy.

His work has been extensively exhibited worldwide and been collected by major museums and private collections through Islamic world.

Location: Total Arts at the Courtyard - Dubai- UAE

Sheikh Zayed Rd. (E11), Al Qouz Industrial area 1 Street 4 and 6, Courtyard Building,
