Arabic Calligrapher

Category - Diwani Script

The Diwani script is a specific calligraphic style within the Arabic script, known for its cursive nature. Its name originates from its usage in the Ottoman diwan, being a confidential script within the sultan’s palace. Diwani is esteemed for its beauty, harmony, and the perception that accurately crafted smaller samples are more aesthetically pleasing than larger ones. It continues to be employed in the correspondences of royalty, dignitaries, presidents, ceremonial documents, greeting cards, and holds significant artistic value. Primarily utilized in the penning of royal decrees and chancellery documents, the Diwani script’s intricate lines and closely connected letters distinguish it from other scripts. Its defining features include dramatically curved letters arranged in an unconventional manner.
