Talking to APP, an official of Ministry of National Heritage and
Literacy Heritage said,”This exibition would be first calligraphic exibition
where artists could showcase their art work with their best abilities.”
“Calligraphy used to do with pen and ink on paper, but it can also be
woven into painting, carvings, and other two- and three-dimensional works” he said.
Modern artists continue to experiment with new materials and
techniques, but they all revolve around love and reverence for the written word he added.
