Although calligraphy is an ancient art form, it will probably remain relevant for as long as humans continue to communicate with written language. This 3D calligraphy art by Tolga Girgin, an electrical engineer and graphic designer in Turkey, is an excellent example of how this ancient art continues to evolve even today.

Girgin’s graceful letters seem to peel or tear off of the page owing to his skillful and clever shading. Their flowing forms and bright coloration serve to make them even more eye-catching.
