Afjei has classically learnt calligraphy and professionally works on Nastalique, Shekasteh-Nastalique and Solthe. His calligraphy-paintings are so personal and variable and the imaginary view of his works are dominant toward the calligraphic forms. In other words, he uses the letters as some tools to paint and the geometry of the words are shaping his various compositions. His new view is an imaginative one and sometimes exaggerated but they are always enthusiastic and meanwhile he is perfect at calligraphy his calligraphy-paintings are quite varied. As he has gained experience on calligraphy-painting on different sizes for many years, now he has created some new ones which some part of them are seen before but with this difference that his new works are much more imaginative and are done very easily. This collection that is called “Siah Mashque” are created with the repetition of letters and this letters are more flexible as they are affected by the compositions. Actually we can say that Afjei uses the letters depending on his personal opinions and we can’t see no other same works elsewhere. Ali Jamshidi
