He said I do experimental calligraphy. You need to be dedicated towards your art. Lettering is a distinctive style of calligraphy. Which can be done from handmade to today’s digital medium. For this, it is most important that we expand our artistic outlook and artistic thinking, only then it is possible. This is a visual style. Which is given not just letters or words but an artistic shape.

Calligrapher Jameel Ahmed, who joined from Bangladesh, uses calligraphy in his paintings. And according to their thoughts, they use colors and words in them. Jameel Ahmed, through his demonstration, wrote calligraphy on canvas using double pencil and composed an artwork using colors, textures and also made people aware of its nuances.

Calligraphy is used in many ceremonies, letters, original handmade materials, buildings, souvenirs, etc. Aesthetics are also very important in calligraphy. Along with the word, it is also necessary to have a feeling. Tools can also be used according to your feelings and thoughts. Jameel Ahmed uses Bengali and Arabic language in his calligraphy. Mostly used as paintings.

On the other hand, Inku Kumar only gives great importance to the calligraphy style. Hindi gives maximum importance to Devanagari script.
