Founder of the museum (Owner/Director)
The initiator of the World Calligraphy Museum is private collector Alexey Shaburov. There are many museums with permanent exhibitions of calligraphic works all over the world, in particular in Turkey, China, Japan, and the United Arab Emirates. However, in Russia, such an experience has no equivalent.
The museum’s exposition includes unique samples of writing – world masterpieces created by recognized masters of calligraphy. The museum presents exquisite examples of Slavic and European writing, refined works of the Jewish and Arabic schools of calligraphy, strict forms of classical Japanese calligraphy, and examples of ancient Chinese writing that reveal the history of the art of calligraphy and reflect the new facets of fine art. There are domestic and foreign books on the art of calligraphy, rare manuscripts issued in single editions, and writing instruments of the past and present.
The World Calligraphy Museum has a new and truly unusual combination of paintings and graphics and provides excellent answers to questions such as how to combine leisure and culture and which exhibition halls and galleries to visit in Moscow.
