We’re thrilled to welcome Haji Noor Deen Mi Guang Jiang, internationally acclaimed master of Arabic calligraphy, to the Bradford Literature Festival. The major artist initiated and taught the first regular and systemic Arabic calligraphy course at the Zhengzhou Islamic College in China.
His calligraphy is writing new chapters in history: the piece ‘The Ninety Nine Names of God’ was acquired by The British Museum in 2005 for permanent display in the gallery of Islamic Art.
Haji Noor Deen brings vast knowledge of Islamic art and traditional thought to a modern audience, and with it, a kind of magic. Join him in conversation as he talks about his astonishing technique, his work, and its essential role as an expression of his faith and his relationship with God. Unmissable.
