There is only a handful number of visual artists who has the guts to go against the tides and present what is deemed as ‘unusual’ to the public. Yahya Khatib is a name that will be remembered as an inovative talent in the art scene as he tries to implement calligraphy art under a new light. Yahya has been around since the late 1980’s and his works produced have not been stagnant within the confinement of the oil and acrylic medium. With his length of experience, he puts his trust in the ever dynamic digital medium in order to get the Islamic scripts across to the art lovers.

 

In his eyes, Yahya regards the introduction of digital format printed on waterproof turpaulin material as a factor in gaining interest among the new generation as an effort to promote the importance of Jawi literature and Quran’s holy words. This is also witnessed by the unconventional work composition such as the architectural illustration made up of holy scripture from the Quran as well as the national flower Bunga Raya containing the five pillars in Rukunegara. Recently, Yahya has also been selected to exhibit in a solo show at the NSTP Art Gallery, Bangsar in 2013 in a series of 36 calligraphy works.

 

 

Tidak ramai para artis visual yang berani untuk menampilkan kelainan pada persembahan karya mereka. Yayha Khatib adalah salah seorang daripada segelintir daripada bakat inovatif yang cuba untuk menitipkan definisi terbaru dalam aliran seni kaligrafi. Mula berkecimpung dalam dunia kaligrafi ini sejak tahun 1987 lagi, karyanya tidak tertakhluk kepada karya cat minyak mahupun warna air. Yahya menaruh kepercayaan kepada medium digital yang dinamik lalu memperlihatkan keindahan kalimah suci dan zikrullah kepada pencinta seni.

 

Yahya berpendapat bahawa pengenalan format digital yang dicetak di atas material turpaulin ini mampu untuk menarik minat generasi muda terhadap kepentingan memelihara cinta terhadap penulisan jawi dan ayat suci Al-Quran. Ini dibantu dengan komposisi karya yang tidak konvensional seperti ilustrasi bangunan moden di Kuala Lumpur yang dibentuk daripada kalimah suci, lambang bunga kebangsaan yang mengandungi prinsip Rukunegara dan pelbagai lagi. Terbaru, Yahya telah berjaya untuk menempatkan dirinya pada tahap yang lebih tinggi apabila telah dipilih untuk menjayakan pameran solo kaligrafi di Balai Seni NSTP, Bangsar pada tahun 2013.
