Huang Poh Lo {N. Poolohgasingam}, “The Man Below The Wind”, Malaysian living in Sabah and currently the only known Indian, Chinese Calligrapher in the world. He also created “Shah Rumi-Jawi” Calligraphy, a Roman font of 26 alphabets. I can’t read Chinese and I am very humbled to meet this man who is a master of this Chinese art form.

New Sabah Times (newspaper) feature about Huang Poh Lo.. “when you mix love and skill, you get a masterpiece”.
