  • About the Artist 艺术家简介

    A.S. Kang (Kang Ah Sim) was born in Kedah in 1951. Despite the absence of any formal art education, Kang managed to establish himself as a prominent artist in the competitive art world through his relentless hard works and fiery passion towards art.

     

    As a jack in all pots, Kang is skilled in a wide range of media including acrylic, Chinese ink painting & calligraphy and even sculpturing. This is especially surprising given that all of these are learnt from the artist’s self-taught processes. As the Vice President of the North Kedah Art Society (2001 - 2018), Kang’s collectors include the National Art Gallery, Bank Negara Malaysia, the New Straits Times Press and other private sectors. Kang has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions at Younie Gallery, Kuala Lumpur and international art expos including Artists’ Art Fair Malaysia (2014).

     

    Kang’s expertise and ability in depicting Koi fish – an emblem of good luck, prosperity and spiritual advancement highly popular among the Asian community, is truly exceptional. The cool, pristine pond water flowing calmly, suddenly stirred viciously by a huge cluster of koi fish. Golden, red, white and black, these koi fish swim energetically yet elegantly below the water surface. The dynamic of turbulent water and the vibrant colours of these beautiful fish are all underpinned by the darker-toned bottom, magically emanating a sense of balance and serenity. It is no wonder that Kang is famously known as “The King of Koi” across the art industry.

     

    江亚森在1951年于吉打出生。没有接受过正规绘画的他,是一名才华横溢的自学艺术家,艺术领域横跨压克力、中国水墨画及书法和雕塑。身为吉打艺术家协会 Angkatan Pelukis Kedah)和槟城艺术协会的永久会员,江亚森的收藏家包括马来西亚国家画廊、国家银行和私人业界。

     

    江亚森在描绘象征着吉祥、富足、奋发向上的鲤鱼时表现尤其出色。清冷深邃的水面被一群活泼旺盛的锦鲤打乱。激烈荡起的水花配上鲜艳灵活的鱼身,共同编织出一部优雅而生机勃勃的交响曲。可是水底沉着的色调,又使整个充满爆发力的场面瞬间停格,并且散发一股神秘而平静之美。

    与其说江亚森在描绘锦鲤,不如说他是透过鱼儿表现那独一无二的灵动性。如此精湛的绘画技巧,正是让江亚森在艺术界被尊称为锦鲤王的原因。
