PAKISTAN---Calligraphy, one of the most ancient expressions of Islamic art, continues to be celebrated across the world. With the passage of time, the old traditional art has been revamped with the help of modern techniques, mediums and brush strokes, taking the revered Islamic art to a whole new level. This treatment of artistic expression can be seen at Grandeur Gallery, where 14 artists have displayed their unique takes on calligraphy. Among the many facets of the work on display, a common yet heightened feature of all the works was the use of colour. [link]
