Masters of nibs and wrists

Masters of nibs and wrists

Is it an ancient handwriting, or some mythological abstraction?

Is it an art or a craft?

It’s all above, and maybe more than that. It’s a gesture and a way to communicate through age. Sounds exciting right? It doesn’t stop there.

The idea behind these hundreds of fonts you see on your applications and the thousands of books you see in the bookstore, written meticulously by different authors – about religion, fashion and Lord knows what has stemmed from the art of calligraphy. All of that was made possible when the masters of the sacred art dipped their quills in ink to write on a piece of vellum, as the feathers spluttered and scrolled…

When did it all start?

The roots of calligraphy can be traced back to the Stone Age when the writings were carefully carved on fossils. Legend has it that the sacred art of calligraphy was re-invented after Wang Xizhi took a boating trip to observe the neck movements of geese’s neck; that’s how he perfected the art of moving his wrists in a spectacular fashion. And now, the world remembers him as ‘the sage of calligraphy’.

But why does it still exist in the 21st century?

Yes, we no longer carve the writings on ‘turtle shells’ and ‘animal bones’, but asking why it still exists is like reading the whole story and not knowing the hero of it. Now, the evolution is not confined to communication only. The modern-day calligraphy has touched new heights and its purpose has broadened. Whether you talk about business, art or fashion, calligraphy is on the go.

For example, in Pakistan, owing to its cultural traditions, many people including kids and grownups are inclined towards this art and modeling themselves after renowned calligraphers like Sadequain, Ismail Gulgee and Pervaiz Ahmed. Each of them displays a great show of admiration. For instance, Sadequain’s art emphasizes on ‘power of space’ and the strength.

Similarly, Gulgee is more about the blazing effect. Its painting shows the illusion of vibrations.

Similarly, Gulgee is more about the blazing effect. Its painting shows the illusion of colorful vibrations.

These Pakistani masters have adopted different calligraphic techniques. However, one of the oldest styles that have been used in several religious manuscripts is Kufic. It is an enigmatic style composed with different geometric components like arcs, curves and straight lines.

You can do all that too. All you need is a pen, brush and a paper to practice on.

Lastly, calligraphy teaches us a great deal about patience and discipline which are important aspects of living a healthy and prosperous life.

      Origin of calligraphy can be traced backed into many centuries. Some say it started when people started to write. Get assignment assistance for easiness as I also love to do it because calligraphy is just another form of art rather it teaches great patience and discipline.
