TEHRAN -- Tehran’s Saba Art and Cultural Institute is currently hosting an exhibition of pottery and calligraphic paintings by two artists from Tabriz in the northwestern Iranian province of East Azarbaijan.
New forms of earthenware by Mohammad-Hassan Mehdipur and a collection of calligraphic paintings by Majid Hosseinzadeh have been put on display in an exhibit entitled “Practicing Love with Earth and Line”, Saba announced in a press release on Tuesday.
Mehdipur’s works feature a number of bas-relief-shaped calligraphy works created from earth. He has been working with pottery for the past 40 years.
Hosseinzadeh has brought 20 of his latest calligraphic paintings to the exhibit, which opened on April 21.
Most of the calligraphy works are verses of the Holy Quran.
“I was a student of Master Mohammad Ehsaii. I also learned a lot from Master Jalil Rasuli,” Hosseinzadeh said.
“However, I practiced thulth, a calligraphic variety of Arabic script, in Istanbul for two years and next traveled to Iraq to continue with thulth,” he added.
The exhibit will be running until April 28 in the the institute located on Mozaffar St., off Taleqani Ave., near Felestin Square.
