Arch of letters, Masoud Safar’s calligraphy-painting, is made of waterproof and acrylic ink on gold sheet (Dimensions 90 x 120 cm).
This work is a representation of geometric architecture of words; a row of inscriptions made an arc of letters; a manifestation of writing words in Kufic script in the sacred space of the Mihrab. This script is very similar to “Daena-dipi-bara” or Avestan script; Avestan alphabet can also be seen in Iranian architecture. Numerous mihrab of historical mosques are decorated with such inscriptions and Masoud Safari has created a mihrab of written words.
Calligraphy-painting is a contemporary field of art; Encountering alphabets as a purely visual element; The shapes formed by combination of letters and words; A collection of forms that is a new representation of traditional script (here in Kufic script).
