I am so blessed to be able to spend my time searching for great items to put on our site, www.goodmuslimgirl.com.  I basically get to shop all day long.  Most of all, I looove being able to bring  attention to artist, designers or items that I think deserve attention.

In this case, it is artist Haji Noor Deen Mi Guang Jiang.  From his website www.hajinoordeen.com, he is describe as  “a renowned master of Arabic calligraphy. Born in 1963 in Shangdong province, China, he brings an immense learning in traditional thought and Islamic art to a modern audience, juxtaposing them in a new calligraphic style all his own, both Eastern and Western.”

His innovative style is a complementary mixture of Arabic and Chinese calligraphy.  Styles which were once thought to be opposites.   His pieces are extraordinary and come in either large scroll form or as smaller framed art pieces all at varying price points.

In 1997,  Noor Deen was the first Chinese Muslim to be awarded the Egyptian Certificate of Arabic Calligraphy and to be admitted as a member of the Association of Egyptian Calligraphy.

Noor Deen’s mastery has brought lecture invitations from Havard, Cambridge and many other note worthy institutions.  However, accolades aside, I think his work speaks for itself.
