  • Ghaar

    (b. 1994, Tehran, Iran) The cave: man’s first shelter, a cozy corner where his inner depth and contemplation come to existence. A blind, usually dim spot where gives birth to light and creativity. The cave will be man’s last shelter amidst his hectic urban life full of ruckus.
    Ghaar’s first activity began by him writing his own name under various forms of Persian calligraphy all through the city, marking himself as one of the most productive Iranian graffiti writers. His passion and focus on the form of letters in Persian graffiti writing styles led him to a point where he met the ancient calligraphy world. To him, the calligraphy world is directly connected to today’s graffiti; inclination towards writing beautifully, cultivating style in writing and giving identity to letters. After years of experience and learning calligraphy, he then managed to reach a new identity in Iranian graffiti writing style through combining his personal visual experiences. From Ghaar’s perspective, Graffiti is calligraphy made of the city and its streets.
