  • 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.
