About the Artist
Muhammad Zaman is an Urban Artist who specializes in Arabic calligraphy. Over the years, he has developed a personal style that incorporates three different languages that make up his identity: English since he lives in the USA, the Bengali, the language of his fatherland, and Arabic which is the language of the religion he belongs to. Muhammad came to the USA when he was eleven years old and now lives on Buffalo’s East Side.
He has worked on many murals in the past including for Buffalo State University, the Burchfield Penny Museum, and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
