Nastaliq & Shekaste (Broken) Calligraphy
Nastaliq, Pen Calligraphy
Those who are fond of learning this art should have patience and endurance as this type of calligraphy, in comparison with the other calligraphical styles, has various letters and complex word connections. The art of Nasta’liq calligraphy, in terms of its authenticity and excellence, is related to the calligraphy style of Master Mir Emad Hassani Qazvini, whose style few Iranian artists have been able to follow in terms of its rules and delicacies. In recent years, this noble style has undergone some changes by great contemporary masters such as Master Amirkhani. What was noticeable in the calligraphical style of prior masters, such as Mir Emad, was the complete performance without any manipulation after writing each letter, which is said to be “whatever comes out of writing by the pen.” These days, most artists of this style of calligraphy find that after performing the work, must make further manipulations to achieve the final product.
