Also, as part of the meeting, the author of the works will personally conduct a tour of the personal exhibition, which has been taking place at Bolgar Islamic Academy since December last year.

Let us remind you that the exhibition displays four cycles of the artist's works: excerpts from Koran and hadiths of the Prophet (peace be upon him); quotes from famous Tatar figures; personal marks of famous personalities; works dedicated to Gabdulla Tukai. The works were written in various styles of calligraphy: Thuluth, Naskh, Taglik.
