Tehran, 6 May 2007 (CHN)- In continuing its cooperation with United Nation World Food Programme (WFP) under the slogan of "Hand in hand in Fight against Hunger", Pasargadae Gallery in Tehran is host of unique works of Einoddin Sadeghzadeh, Iranian graphic designer and calligrapher who is initiator of calligraphy with tar in Iran.

Working for more than 20 years as a professional calligrapher in an interview with CHN, Sadeghzadeh described this type of calligraphy with tar as a combination of Zen calligraphy, which is a style chose by human beings for releasing themselves form mental and spiritual bonds, and Persian traditional calligraphy. "For creating such works, you should first be inspired by your own soul and then start working which will result in creating such artistic and unique works," said Sadeghzadeh.

Sadeghzadeh who has not yet designated a name for the style he has initiated, described it as "Artistic confrontation with calligraphy" and said: "In my point of view, there are two methods of calligraphy including classic and modern calligraphy. In first one, artists practice the traditional methods which have been defined in a specific format and do not create them. While when you pass this process, with inspiring your own spirit and using your own potentials, artists would be able to surpass these rules and limitations and create something new and different."

Sadeghzadeh, who has followed calligraphy art lovingly from childhood, believe that in an attempt to create an artistic work, an artist should choose this career for his own sake and his love to art and not to gain wealth and fame which will deprive him from the real art.

Einoddin Sadeghzadeh who has BA in graphic and MA in graphic designing is also a university professor and has held several exhibitions so far in Asian, Arabian and European countries such as Tajikistan, Ukraine, China, England, Dubai, Qatar, and Jordan. Currently 28 of his works in calligraphy with tar are on display for public in Pasargadae Gallery.

Vahid Malek, director of Pasargadae Gallery who has held a number of exhibitions both inside and outside the country in an effort to introduce Iranian artists to the world and pave the way for their improvement recognized Sadeghzadeh's works very unique and special and told CHN: "Pasargadae Gallery would welcome to host exhibitions of artists who have initiative in their works."

The calligraphy exhibition by Einoddin Sadeghzadeh will run to May 9 in Pasargadae Gallery located in Dowlat Street in Tehran. The gallery is open for public visit from 5-9 pm.
