“My creations aren't weapons,” warns Reza Abedini who opened his office in Teheran in 1993, three years after the war with Iraq. “They are not there to be used by extremists in any shape or form.” Instead, they are models of harmony and restraint. Indeed, his work has no more of an aesthetic function than it has a practical one insofar as it is always a response to a client's specific requirements. “I just try to be myself. Work is not unlike a mirror. It reflects the person who produced it. If you are honest with yourself, and produce work that is in keeping with your beliefs, the work will be beautiful.” Reza Abedini has nonetheless done something 'revolutionary'. Drawing his inspiration from tradition, he has reworked certain elements. In particular, he created a stir when he was the first to combine Persian calligraphy (including Nastaligh calligraphy), with typesetting which is considered very much the lesser art form.
