Modern Copperplate & Brush
The art of calligraphy is defined in two sections.
In the first section, the art of modern calligraphy is performed with copperplate pen and ink that follows the principles of copperplate calligraphy and has centennial antiquity.
In the second section of modern calligraphy, regarding the emergence and innovation of brush calligraphy by the Eastern people (produced with the purpose of performing Chinese and Japanese calligraphy) some European calligraphers took advantage by applying its performance potential. They started to perform copperplate calligraphy with the use of pen brushes for added color.
At the same time, there is still no complete and comprehensive definition for brush calligraphy but it can be said that modern calligraphy is the opposite of traditional calligraphy. This type of calligraphy has three important attributes.
This type of calligraphy could have found its place by Mojtaba Karami in Iran.
1- Modern calligraphy is bound with traditional principles. If you are a fan of modern calligraphy, you can ignore the traditional principles of calligraphy. For instance, there is no need to be involved with complicated movements such as sharp and precise difficulties.
2 – Modern calligraphy is easy and available. It was once said that not all people have the capability to learn calligraphy and it requires special ability, but this claim about modern calligraphy is not true. One only needs to hold a pen and write down the style one wants on a piece of paper.
3 - Modern calligraphy seeks to be combined. What makes calligraphy beautiful is not just writing letters beautifully, but looking for a beautiful combination of letters, one next to another.
