Ayub HajiOmar explores contemporary matters via the Quran. In his larger than life paintings, he uses vibrant colors and universal symbols as a bridge for all to the Quran. Written in gold, the Quran is quoted in Arabic directly on his paintings. Through his artwork, he seeks to promote peace and tolerance while giving the viewer an opportunity to learn more about Islam.


Ayub HajiOmar is an Islamic Contemporary Fine Artist. He is a Muslim, Somali- American living in Rochester Minnesota. He has been painting for more than 10 years and is currently a contributing artist to the new Discovery Walk urban redesign for Destination Medical Center with the City of Rochester. HajiOmar is a 2019 recipient of the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council grant for emerging artists.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
