Old City – Calligraffiti by Vera DG
- Old city – Abstract Calligraffiti / Painting
Canvas, 51cm diameter, mixed media, gold
Walking along the streets of the ancient city,
inhaling the dust of times, we will never be able to see the truth.
The world is so changeable. And these letters for a long time no one can read.
Artwork decorated with a golden splash of Calligraffiti strokes.
The history of calligraphy is as old as writing itself. The main function of writing is to transmit information, history, and knowledge.
Description of the artwork’s style:
Essentially, calligraphy was originally created in order to convey the text and meaning in a beautiful way and was related to books and manuscripts. When we create modern Calligraffiti we don’t think that these signs can be read.
Because of the aesthetics of the letter itself comes first.
Artist combines in an abstract way Arabic, Iranian, European Gothic calligraphy strokes, transmitting the emotional meaning through the beauty of the lines, which in the artist’s opinion always unites with the beauty of the sounds of Azan.
It will fill perfectly the interior in minimalism, oriental or modern style.
