Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Awal Hurouf, Asal Hurouf marks a key moment in the timeline of when contemporary calligraphy strongly began taking root as a dominant genre in Malaysian art. It might be thought that calligraphy’s appeal would be directed to the Islamic or Malay cultures; yet the Malaysian contemporary calligraphy movement resonates strongly with Malaysians of all races and faiths. Thus, it may follow that if contemporary art reflects contemporary life, this appreciation for contemporary calligraphy is indicative of the growing changes to social landscapes in Malaysia, as the local Malay-Muslim population became increasingly urbanised, due to their increasing economic strength, which stems from the successes for the government’s NEP and education policies. Thus, Awal Hurouf, Asal Hurouf appeal to a diverse audience has grown from Husin’s subtle observations on the transformations to urban Malaysian societies. Moreover, the series demonstrated the ways in which calligraphy was being used by Malaysian artists as an icon imbibed with personal, social, cultural or aesthetic values.

Artist Profile

Born: 1963

Hometown: Perak

Based in: Perak

Established Malaysian contemporary artist Husin Hourmain is an abstract expressionist artist at heart. His paintings are a pure expression of flowing energy. From his very successful solo Awal Hurouf Asal Hurouf show in 2013, Husin singlehandedly brought about a new perspective to Islamic calligraphy as we know it and proves to be the most sought after Malaysian contemporary Islamic calligraphy artist. His collection of 30 pieces from his Awal Hurouf Asal Hurouf is widely acclaimed and garnered much attention beyond the borders of race, religion and nationality.

Observing an impending decline of understanding the Jawi amongst our youth, Husin Hourmain continues to delve into his cultural and religious identity of being a Malaysian Muslim. He imbues his artworks with a culmination of his strong abstract expressionist brush strokes and Jawi calligraphy, bringing about a better understanding and appreciation of Jawi for his multi-cultural and multi-racial audience.

His works are collected by public and private collectors in Malaysia.
