Residency Program in Sasaran
Sasaran Arts Association started the program in Sasaran - the Artist
Program in 2018, the aim is to continue promoting Sasaran as an
to provide a platform for young artists to grow, explore, develop and
artistic work. The residencies are intended to provide an opportunity
to live and
work in Sasaran, a small fishing village in the state of Selangor, and
of 2 months. We provide workspace and accommodation in a fishing

artists seeking solitude, silence or space to focus on their work, to
journey in art.
Sasaran Arts Association provides artists with a conducive
studio space, living
and monthly stipends, along with opportunity to exhibit their
Balai Seni Sasaran Kuala Selangor (Sasaran Art Gallery) at the end of

visitors/villagers as possible and allow the artists to show their work

I am interested in
realistic painting; I use the transparent traditional oil painting
techniques to make realistic photo-like painting. Technical-wise I hope
to be able to
achieve the hyper-realistic painting someday in the future.

Malaysia. From cultural differences, economy perspective to the
of human behaviours towards the East and the West of Malaysia. The
