This is Letterhythm
Our work is a study of letterforms and alphabets from various cultures around the world that are sometimes forgotten or have gone extinct. We are exploring the space to create multicultural inscriptions bridging Asian and Western cultures through contemporary writing called calligraffiti, introducing it as a new genre in the art scene. Most of the work consists of handwritten calligraffiti influenced by letters from ancient Gothic, Aramaic, Arabic, Cyrillic, Sanskrit, and Iban (native Borneo) scripts as well as others, combining various elements to form an artwork for both modern and traditional societies. Our aim is to bridge the letterforms of different cultures into one to show the power of unity, and how collaborations are our future’s next normal.
The name is Dhiya Roslan but better known as Letterhythm is a designer by day and calligrapher by night. With a professional background in the design, printing, advertising and media production industries since 2012—a journey of almost 10 years of ups and down—he came to fall in love with calligraphy while dabbling in graffiti and street art in the 2000s. By combining his graffiti skills with calligraphy, he is now invested on the new art form called Calligraffiti.Letterhythm’s artworks mostly consist of simple to hardcore handwritten calligraphy on various mediums such as paper, digital, canvas, wood, fabric, walls, and now NFT. He has participated in and conducted numerous exhibitions and workshops to expose both the young and old to the art of Calligraffiti.
