The Cultural Village Foundation Katara, in cooperation with the Turkish Cultural Centre Yunus Emre in Doha, invites you to attend Fine Arabic Calligraphy Exhibition by a group of Turkish Calligraphers.
This brilliant showcase of Arabic calligraphy as a treasure of Islamic and Arab culture will be held from 12 March 2020 - 19 March 2020.
Arabic calligraphy is considered a creative art that has crowned the Arab and other Islamic civilizations. It is different from other types of calligraphy whose main feature is that it transcends its mission of conveying meaning to achieve an aesthetic objective.
Arabic calligraphy is a distinct art and Arabic letters have their own splendid magic as every letter has its secrets reserved in a protected place to which only the artistic and creative elites are guided. The blending of colours and lines in the Kufic style, which is the oldest calligraphic form of various Arabic scripts, contribute to the overall appeal of the paintings to every art enthusiast present at the exhibition launch.
Visitors are given a peek into the long history and development of Arabic calligraphy through the variety of glyphs and forms used by the artists.
