Artist Residency Program in Sasaran

  Sasaran Arts Association started the program in Sasaran - the Artist
Residency Program in 2018, the aim is to continue promoting Sasaran as an art
village and to provide a platform for young artists to grow, explore, develop and
create their 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 for
a duration of 2 months. We provide workspace and accommodation in a fishing
village, far away from the bustle of the city. This residency is recommended for
young artists seeking solitude, silence or space to focus on their work, to start
their journey in art.

  Sasaran Arts Association provides artists with a conducive studio space, living

arrangements and monthly stipends, along with opportunity to exhibit their
artworks at Balai Seni Sasaran Kuala Selangor (Sasaran Art Gallery) at the end of
the residency. There will be occasional open studios at the studio space to benefit
as many visitors/villagers as possible and allow the artists to show their work in
progress during their stay. Visual artists are expected to leave at least 2 art works
that has been made at Sasaran for the permanent collection of Sasaran Art

  Since 2018, Sasaran has hosted four batches of artists in residence, the program

stopped for a year in 2021 due to the pandemic. This year Sasaran welcomes another new batch of artist for the AR Program.

  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.

  My artwork projects the contrast and conflict between the East and West of
Malaysia. From cultural differences, economy perspective to the stereotypes
of human behaviours towards the East and the West of Malaysia. The series
of realistic paintings showing the artistic interpretation of the current situation
of the country through photo-realistic visuals with representational icons and
