The calligraphic arts have been a staple of the art world for decades, and it’s no surprise that many people in Argentina are calling the calligrams “a universal language” and a “cultural expression of the culture”.
But now, some of the world’s top calligrahers are set to receive an unusual amount of money for their work.
According to the Argentinian newspaper El País, the government has agreed to pay calligram artists the equivalent of around $400 per day, or around $2,500 per year.
The calligraphs are the work of a group called the Argentina calligraphy Society, and are one of the most popular forms of writing in Argentina.
The calligraphs are hand-drawn, with the words often printed on the paper.
A group of Argentinian calligrafists will be paid by the government to help write the country’s new constitution.
The society was founded in 1982 and was started to defend the rights of calligriphers in Argentina, and its members include calligraper and graphic designer Jose Antonio Martinez.
A representative for the Society told the newspaper the contract will pay the group the equivalent in monthly wages of around 40,000 Argentinian pesos ($5,500).
A spokesperson for the Argentinians government confirmed the payment to El Paí, but did not specify when the deal will take effect.
The government has not specified what services the contract covers.
In a statement, the Ministry of Justice said it would not pay the calligraphists wages, but would cover their costs and expenses.
