"My purpose for this marriage between Word and Art has been to try to portray the meaning of the Words more effectively."

Welcome to Reza’s virtual studio! Please, pour yourself a cup of tea and make yourself at home.

Persian calligraphy is an art of discipline and grace. Once the ink touches the surface of the canvas, it becomes unique to the moment and emotion in which it is created. It cannot be rushed, and once a stroke is made it cannot be modified or redone.

Combined with modern painting and line drawings, Reza brings the spirit of Persian calligraphy to new audiences, transcending cultural traditions and expectations about the interplay of words and images on the canvas. Many of Reza’s pieces are inspired by words from the Baha’i writings, which explore the mysteries of spiritual and material realms of existence.

We invite you to explore. Browse the gallery, learn about upcoming events and exhibitions, and catch a glimpse into the rich traditions and techniques behind the brush strokes.
