About Instructor:

Sri Achyut Palav
Each letter in every script known to man holds an eternal power, an individual beauty in its vertical, horizontal, angular lines, in their continuity. I have made efforts to bring forth calligraphy not only as art form but a expressive medium where letters in all their nakedness become alive, vibrating, pulsating with its inherent, shape, giving a canvas space to your thoughts, a meaning to the sounds & actions. Be it Devnagri or the English scripts, a constant thirst for knowledge and passion for perfection continues to give a special meaning to my quest in Calligraphy. Even today I say, that I have just begun the journey towards my destination and I still have a long way to go. Education: 1. 1982 - G.D Art from Sir J.J. Institute of Applied Art, Mumbai. 2. 1984 - Research Scholarship from Ulka Advertising for thesis on Modi script (15th to 17th Century). 3. Ex. Faculty member of Sir J.J. Institute of Applied Art.
