The renowned Iranian calligrapher Esrafil Shirchi is to hold an exhibition of seventy works at the Niavaran Complex in the near future.
The works include many of his latest creations which were inspired by the poetry of Molana Jalal ad-Din Rumi and which have previously been displayed in Britain, France, and Bahrain.
Shirchi has not held an exhibition in Iran since 2000 and he is planning to publish a collection of his works simultaneously with the exhibit. The 300-page book will be published in Persian and English.
He is also scheduled to hold an exhibition of his works in the United Arab Emirates in December.
