Letters Arts Review Annual Issue

My work got selected and published in this year's annual juried issue of Letters Arts Review, an excellent calligraphy magazine. There were total 314 entries created by 98 artists from 20 different countries. I am very happy and excited as judges selected my work and gave the opportunity to stand with other well known calligraphers. Also the exposure of Indian Devnagri script on international front. That's really motivating and gives me kick to do more challenging stuff.

An artwork which I sent was a popular poem by Late HarivanshRai Bachchan. Its in Devnagri script, written by Lamy fountain pen with blue ink on orange cartridge paper.

Thanks Alice, John Neal,  Christopher Calderhead.

Excellent! Congratulations, Nikheel.

This is both wonderful for you, and for Letter Arts Review. I think it LAR is expanding to showcase more "world calligraphy", which, I think, is exciting, inspiring and beneficial to calligraphers everywhere! Can't wait to get my issue!
