Translated, the title speaks to Husin searching for himself within the Pillars of Iman, thus underlining that it is a personal take on a concept which holds resonance for a wider community. Upon settling on the idea of working through the six pillars of Iman in a single series, Husin began thinking through the manner in which a concept as ephemeral as the Pillars of Islam might be visually presented. As such, this series can be viewed as one of his most personal body of works to date, as it relies solely on his interpretation, communicated to a wider audience.

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.
