Like many of the asian written scripts, arabic has a romantic impenetrability about it, something in the order of abstract art - to me, anyway.
Second generation Syrian calligraphy artist Badawi Al Dirany has a wonderful gallery of his work - most of the site is in english.
Definitely also go and see these two entries at the nonist - absolutely one of the best sites on the web.
