Mohammad Bozorgi | Profile
Mohammad Bozorgi Visual Artist | 2002 Mohammad Bozorgi approaches calligraphy with an architectural eye that is evident in the mathematical structure and symmetry of letters, especially those comprising his Crying for Honour series. Bozorgi’s masterful command of the centuries-old tradition is the result of intensive studies in classical calligraphic forms such as Divani, Kufic, Nastaliq, Naskh, Sols, Mohaggegh, and Broken Nastaliq to develop distinctly stylized characters based on Arabic and Persian examples. After training with the Society of Iranian Calligraphers for over a decade, Bozorgi left to pursue more innovative calligraphic forms. Drawing from his background in engineering, he makes qualitative calculations when constructing his works, using the directives of geometry to create abstract illusions of movement and space. Building on the breakthroughs of his predecessors, such as those who led the Saqqakhaneh school of Iranian painters in the 1960s, Bozorgi is recognized as a leading figure among the ‘New Generation’ of contemporary calligraphers.
