The Istanbul Classic Arts Center and the Islamic History, Art and Culture Research Center are supporting the exhibition at Dolmabahçe Art Gallery. The exhibition features many works of calligraphy by the artist.
Speaking at the exhibition, Falsafi said he was very content to see the interest in calligraphy art. There are many joint artistic and cultural values between Iran and Turkey, Falsafi said. “Not only religion, but also art makes the two countries collide.”
