About the artist
Born in 1963 in the Chinese province of Shangdong, Haji Noor Deen has spent decades perfecting his art and developing a sophisticated system of Chinese-Arabic calligraphy that combines Chinese aesthetics with Arabic script. In 1997, he was the first Chinese artist in Egypt to receive a certificate in Arabic calligraphy. Later, in 2017, he was honored with the Ijazah Certificate from the Ottoman Calligraphy School in Turkey. His works have been exhibited in over 20 countries and can be found in museum collections around the world, including the British Museum, the San Francisco Asian Museum, the National Museum of Scotland and the Harvard University Art Museum.
