Thank you!
Born in Tehran, Iran in 1962, Ajami first practiced Calligraphy under Master Calligrapher Gholam – Hossein Amirkhaani, in the early 90’s in Iran, where he was also awarded with the ‘Degree of Excellence’by Iran’s Calligraphy Association.

As a Leading pioneer in Calligraphy, Hamid Ajami is the founder of an innovative new style of Persian Calligraphy : ‘Moala’ - an initiation that has not occurred in the past 200 years. Originating from his “Mo’alla” Scripts, literally referring to the term: ‘The Exalted’, his works are a fascinating reflection of Persian Culture fused with inspiration from traditional geometry and contemporary Islamic art.

    2. Persian Calligraphy is the calligraphy of Persian writing system. It has been oneof the most revered arts throughout Persian history. It is considered to be one ofthe most eye catching and fascinating manifestations of Persian culture.
    3. Ostad Hamid Ajami, the founder of Moala style in Persian calligraphy,was born in 1962 in a traditional family in Tehran. His late father, Mr.Hedayatollah, a respectful poet and a prestiged calligrapher, was his firstinstructor.Ostad Hamid Ajami started his serious activities with Iran’s CalligraphyAssociation in 1978, to get familiar with principles and regulations ofacademic calligraphy. His favorite style of calligraphy was “Nasta’lighScript”, which took four years of schooling under the supervision of MasterKeykhosro Khoroosh and there he learned the most important principles ofcalligraphy. Passing “Good” and “Best” levels in this field, he went to thegreat Master, Gholam-Hossein Amirkhani, to complete what he hadlearned before. He started his professional activities in 1981. It took himabout eight years of training to become qualified for the achievement of“Excellent” degree from Iran’s Calligraphy Association. Then he began toteach “Nasta’ligh Script” to those interested in this style. While teaching,he continued his great attempts to get acquainted with printing, layout,and essentials of coloring and illuminating (Tazhib). Consequently, helearned visual arts basis, specially its role in calligraphy. In relation tothis matter, during the next six years he met some outstanding artistsand obtained very precious experiences.In order to achieve his advanced objectives, like any other artists, he established“Fard-A Cultural and Art Institute”. So, six well-known and prominent artistsrounded up, cooperating with this Institute. All these people together have created afascinating atmosphere in Fard-A to present visual arts, especially calligraphy, tothose who are enthusiastically interested in arts.

    5. Now after twenty-two years of perseverance and hard work, itis evident that a talented, decisive and genuine artist hasgot the power to make fundamental changes as an inventionin the field of art. Since 1995, he has been working on thenew “script” he invented. In this new script, he has obeyed alltraditional principles and regulations of calligraphy. By theacceptance and confirmation of Iran’s Art Society,particularly those of experts, Hamid Ajami has the honor ofnaming his new script “Mo’alla” (the Exalted).The issue ofclaiming the invention of “Mo’alla”, regardless of genuinebackground of calligraphy in the last hundred years, willleave doubts for calligraphy and art enthusiasts, though it isascertained that such an initiation had not been manifestedduring the last two hundred years. His first individualexhibition was held in October 1999 in Tehran, consisting offorty handwritings called “Mo’alla Script”, showing histechnical and specialized abilities in this style of writing.The exhibition was very successful and was visited by variousart groups in Iran with enthusiasm.The graphic aspect of Moalla style does not divert it from thetraditional course of calligraphy, rather it makes it possiblefor the other arts to use the new style in better ways

    10. The current flag of Iran wasadopted on 29 July 1980,Its field is a tricolour comprisingequal horizontal bands of green,white, and red. The red emblem inthe centre of the flag, designed byHamid Nadimi, is a highly stylizedcomposite of various Islamicelements: a geometricallysymmetric form of the word Allah("God") and overlapping parts of thephrase La ilaha illa Allah ("There isno god but Allah"), forming amonogram in the form of a tulip.Written in white on the inner edgesof the green and red bands is therepeated phrase Allahu Akbar("God is great") in a stylized versionof the Kufic script used for theQuran. The takbir is written in whitea total of 22 times on the fringe ofboth the green and red bands in theKufic script. This writing renders theflag non-reversible.
