Gozel Kushliyeva

Saturday & Sunday only, Canopy F

Today in Istanbul’s famous Grand Bazaar, calligraphers routinely decorate tiles, paper or other materials with elaborate and beautiful script.Though they often write in Latin script, their style of calligraphy is built upon the ancient tradition of Arabic script. From a young age Gozel Kushliyeva enjoyed painting, designing, illustrating, smocking and sewing. Her artistry led her to explore calligraphy and here in Utah she has shared this art at several Turkish cultural festivals.
