leave a comment »

Mehmed was the grandson of Mustafa Dede, the son of Sheikh Hamdullah. He learned the art of calligraphy from his father, from whom he also received his icazet. In Thuluth and Naskhi he imitated the style and character of the script used by his grandfather. He was buried near the grave of his grandfather in the cemetery of Karacaahmet/Istanbul.
