In being able to upscale the importance of Khat calligraphy - a form of art which he puts close to heart - Zamri Amid has diverged himself in the Malaysian industry for approximately 15 years long. Soon after he has successfully graduated from Yayasan Warisan Johor institution, Zamri began to learn on the art of transforming the typical Khat perception into more than just a holy scripture taken from the Quran but also inclined towards simple dhikir speech and Allah’s names.

 

Amongst the concept which Zamri has practiced embody Khat Dewani (none dotted), Khat Dewani Jali (dotted) and a combined concept involving Khat Thuluth and Dewani Jali. It is interesting to note that Khat Thuluth has been known as the ‘king’ of Muslim’s art calligraphy due to its exceptionally tricky production and takes a longer duration for it to be completed. Besides that, Zamri also looks forward to produce more of the commercially-accepted form of calligraphy art, both Khufi and abstract mediums especially for the Gen-Y buyers.

 

According to Zamri, the question of price allocated that is highly dependable on its medium, dimension and technique, is not an issue to stop Muslim art lovers from owning their personal calligraphy composition. Whether to go for an affordable selection or to splurge on a costly piece, the focus should be on their righteous intention, solely for the benefit that calligraphy art brings to their home.


Mengangkat medium seni Khat yang dekat dengan dirinya, artis kaligrafi Zamri Amid telahpun menyelami industri ini selama 15 tahun lamanya. Setelah menerima pendidikan formal daripada Yayasan Warisan Johor, Zamri mampu mengolah persepsi seni Khat di mana ia bukan lagi tertakhluk kepada potongan ayat suci Al-Quran malah turut dipelbagaikan kepada zikir ringkas dan nama-nama Allah.

 

Konsep yang dipraktikkan oleh Zamri termasuklah karya Khat Dewani (tidak bertitik), Khat Dewani Jali (bertitik) dan kombinasi Khat Thuluth dan Dewani Jalil. Khat Thuluth merupakan ‘raja’ kepada karya seni kaligrafi oleh kerana cara penghasilannya yang agak sukar dan memakan masa yang lebih berbanding yang lain. Selain itu, Zamri juga mengeksplorasi medium Khat komersil yang berbentuk abstrak dan khufi yang tidak kurang ‘hebatnya’ untuk dimiliki oleh orang ramai terutamanya di kalangan generasi muda

 

Menurut Zamri, harga bukanlah persoalan utama yang membendung insiatif untuk memiliki karya Khat tambahan pula demi niat mengharmonikan persekitaran kediaman dan tempat kerja dengan barakah. Ia cuma bergantung kepada medium kaligrafi, saiz dan ketelitian yang disumbangkan sepanjang tempoh penghasilannya.
