Kang Ah Young

BA(Hons) Fine Arts

Ah Young is an emerging artist who graduated with a distinction in Diploma in Fine Arts. She will be graduating with a BA(Hons) Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts.

Even though her niche is in oil painting, she is currently expanding her practice as a multimedia artist by further exploring other media such as sculpture and installation. Her art revolves around her identity, growth and recurring feelings of displacement as a non-local in Singapore. Through her deeply personal confrontations with identity crises and her sence of displacement – themes that are prevalent in this day and age – she hopes her sentiments are able to provide a form of comfort, hope and the power to overcome crises in identity.

Ah Young's artworks have been displayed at exhibitions such as See Saw, a group exhibition at Straits Gallery, and Earl Lu Gallery in Singapore. She was also a part of Project 3V - Visualise, Voice & Vision, a collaborative project between LASALLE and Sabancī University at Fass Gallery in Istanbul, Turkey. She was awarded the Special Choice Award for the 41st Daegu International Grand Exhibition.
