|Tehran museum celebrates calligrapher Nasrollah Afjei’s birthday||
At the beginning of the ceremony, the calligrapher Yadollah Kaboli expressed his happiness over attending the event.
“His achievements in calligraphy are too profound to be discussed in a short ceremony,” he added.
“Afjei is a universal character. In other words he is one of our national heritages,” veteran painter Parviz Kalantari said at the ceremony.
An exhibition of his latest works is currently underway at the museum.
Born in 1933 in Tehran, Afjei started calligraphy in the 1970s.
The Ministry Of Culture and Islamic Guidance has previously granted his the First Grade Order of Art and Culture.
He has held several exhibitions in Iran and other countries.
