Haji Noor Deen Mi Guangjiang is a Chinese calligrapher extraordinaire who has been producing Chinese-Arabic calligraphic art for over a decade. Born in 1963 in Yucheng, Shadong province of China, Haji Noor Deen was the first Chinese national conferred with the honorable Certificate of Arabic Calligrapher in Egypt in 1997.
Listed in the “Top 500 Influential Muslims of 2009,” Noor Deen’s calligraphic works have been displayed in distinguished galleries and museums around the world, including the National Museum of Scotland and at Harvard University’s Art Museum.
Last week, ATHR gallery hosted his solo exhibition, where his calligraphic artwork is currently on display for public view.
“We found his work a fitting theme for display in the month of Ramadan. He is such a brilliant artist,” said Hamza Serafi, co-founder of ATHR gallery.
