Contemporary Persian Calligraphy

Most of Feredoun Omidi's work is very formal; his repetitious style giving them an almost geometric balance. So I was a bit surprised in finding some pieces where he gets a little jiggy. They are a relief from, and a compliment to, each other.

This image is from the Payvand Website, where you can see and enjoy both styles.

XVA Gallery has a nice slideshow of his work.
