To compliment the FYI exhibition, CAVE will be hosting a lettering workshop based on traditional Iranian letters of Farsi using Posca Markers.
Cave will explain the processes of creating Farsi lettering for beginners, as well providing an opportunity for participants to create their own Iranian graffiti lettering using this Middle Eastern calligraphy technique.
This workshop will also take place during a special viewing of the FYI exhibition with complimentary soft drinks available for visitors, provided by Ugly Drinks
Iranian artist Cave begun his career in 2006, experimenting with letter styling in Farsi; the official language of Iran. He has always been inspired by the world of Iranian and Middle Eastern art specially calligraphy, which lead him to study about the different scripts and attend classes by masters of calligraphy in Iran to further develop his own style.
