The word ‘calligraphy’ is a combination of two Greek words: kallos (beauty) and graphein (to write). So, in other words, we can say that calligraphy refers to writing in aesthetically pleasing forms.
calligraphy is a visual art form. Its purpose is the same as any other art form, i.e. to evoke an artistic reaction in the viewer.
The purpose of calligraphy is to “show integrity, harmony, some sort of ancestry, rhythm and creative fire.”
