People are successful in the art field and with considerable training in classical art forms and modern techniques, a mixture of the two currently occupies the international art scene. But there are people who are gifted, and without much formal education in the field, they begin to explore various possibilities for themselves. This is the case of Muskan Feroz, a young student of 10 yearse who tried his hand at the art of calligraphy and made his parents proud.
When Muskan started calligraphy, she didn’t even know it was an art form and after, by chance, seeing one of her teachers scribbling on a piece of paper became interested in this art form. She began her search for the art she had witnessed and learned that it was a visual art related to writing involving the design and execution of letters with a pen, ink brush or another writing instrument. By this point, she had focused and wanted to explore calligraphy for her personal interest and satisfaction.
In barely a year, she became more interested and focused and knew that modern calligraphy was not limited to a few things and instead included inscriptions and functional drawings to works of art where the letters may or may not be readable. .
She had, from time to time, noticed beautiful works of calligraphy during the months of Muharram and she did not know that it had stuck with her. When in 2020-21, the covid lockdown confined everything within the confines of our homes, Muskan wanted his calligraphy to flourish in the form of Islamic scriptures, font design, typography, religious art and graphic design.
A student at Dalwan Upper Secondary School Charari Sharief – her hometown – she believes it takes time, effort and talent to make a name for herself in the art world while maintaining that she would pursue his appointment with calligraphy while continuing his formal studies. . She doesn’t want to go just for art right now and believes that even when the art scene in India is very exciting with many new artists making her grow, she would like it to give her time.
For Muskan, calligraphy is satisfying, motivating, fulfilling and heartwarming. She is passionate about calligraphy and wants to pursue it seriously. She is also happy that her parents appreciate her art very much and that they not only encourage her but want her to continue exploring this field.
