About the Exhibition
ADVOCARTSY is pleased to present Mandal, a solo exhibition of works by Kourosh Beigpour. Each work exhibited by Kourosh Beigpour is informed by his mastery of calligraphy and typography and based on his deep understanding and study of ancient Persian philosophy of sacred spaces and mysticism. Beigpour’s creations capture the essence of these sacred spaces, in his mystical designs referencing inherent meanings embedded in concepts of geometry, numerology, and Persian calligraphy, each work signifying the ultimate state of transcendence.
