leave a comment »

Mustafa Vasif was a native of Kastamonu. He came to Istanbul at an early age and began to study Thuluth and Naskhi under the calligrapher Gebecizade Mehmed Effendi. His teacher gave him the nickname “Comez” (theology student who served his master in return for board and tuition) by which he was commonly known. Kazasker Mustafa Izzet Effendi was one of the most outstanding of his pupils. He died in 1269 H. and was buried in Eyup.
