Description: It’s not an abnormality that some people don’t have hearts. Not literally, of course. But given the fixated obsession of the Handphone Age, people have lost much of their sense of humanity. You see a lot of inhuman, cruel and insensitive happenings around us, driven by blind hatred, over-bloated egos and crazed jealousies. As Sabihis Pandi’s X-ray shows, the skeletal anatomy comes without any sign of presence of a heart, and it may portend that we can’t tell about a person because we can’t see his or her heart. But then, what if the heart is physically missing? It reminds one of a Mandarin monster hit song during the 1960s, Fu Xin De Ren, literally meaning ‘heartless person’ or one that is unfaithful, ungrateful and untrustworthy. This type of person never regrets nor admits any wrongdoing although it is evidently clear. It is a lament of the loss of good human values and virtues. Aesthetically, Sabihis is known for finely chiselled woodblock cuts within the figure. Sabihis has been a fulltime artist since he graduated from the Universiti ITM with a BFA, majoring in Printmaking, in 2011 (Diploma in UiTM Machang in Kelantan, 2009). He made headlines when his woodcut print, Awang Hitam, won him the Malaysian Emerging Artist Award competition organised by HOM Art Trans and Galeri Chandan in 2013. In 2014, he won the Bronze Award for ‘Established Artists’ category of the UOB Painting of the Year. He was in the Studio Pisang group with Shafiq Nordin and Hisyamuddin Abdullah featured in the Attract Retract exhibition at G13 Gallery in November 2015. He was represented in Art Expo Malaysia Plus since 2014. He took part in the 2015 Art Bazaar Jakarta, and was selected for the exhibition called The Collective Young From Southeast Asia at Mizuma Gallery, Gillman Barracks, Singapore in 2015. He won Young Guns Award in 2017. With 3 Awards under his belt, he still remains humble, being the ‘Award Collector’.
