Join master calligraphy Haji Noor Deen Mi Guangjiang as he explains and demonstrates the meeting of the world's two most prolific calligraphic traditions!
Calligraphy is the most salient art form in both Islamic and Chinese culture, and Haji Noor Deen is a master at both. Through centuries of an Islamic presence in China, these two forms of expressing art through writing have merged into a uniquely Chinese style of writing sacred calligraphy in Arabic. Haji Noor Deen will talk about the history of this great tradition and then demonstrate some of his techniques in creating a calligraphic masterpiece.
