Celebration of KY Huang
NKY Retrospective Exhibition and Sale at Aseana Gallery
Fri 19th – Sun 21st April 2019
KY Huang is a child of nature and much of his works draw inspiration from the humblest of nature’s treasures. He picks a twig or a fallen branch and transforms it into dignified sculptures that grace boardrooms and mansions. He sees the fish in the oceans and captures their graceful movement as a shoal. His inherent wit shines through in his internationally acclaimed Zebra Barcode paintings which play cleverly on the black and white lines of the zebra’s body and the barcode. KY Huang’s approach to art is simple. He believes art should delight the heart. If his art can bring a smile to a person’s face, he has achieved his goal.
– Creating Sculptures That Make People Smile –
Today, we are celebrating his Life, Love and Legacy.
KY Huang was an avid art collector with over 35 years in art acquisitions. The portfolio, from modern contemporaries to impressionist or realist art pieces.

KY Huang’s Sculptures
BUTTERFLIES ON BOUGHS
An Ode to Beauty & Abundance
A kaleidoscope of butterflies in bold and vivid colours, perched atop beautifully sculptured boughs – symbolic of beauty and abundance, joy and happiness, life and zest.
Blessings and Bountiful Harvests
A stunningly breathtaking series that presents a kaleidoscope of butterflies in bold and vivid colours, perched atop beautifully sculptured boughs. Immortalised in metal, every bough sculpture with a profusion of colourful butterflies represents eternal spring and promise of bountiful harvests. Fluttering butterflies captured in a pose of stillness speak eloquently of joy, hope and good blessings.
When prominently displayed in homes or offices, these incredibly beautiful sculptures evoke a sense of wonderment and imbue vitality, energy and cheer.
Each sculpture of Butterflies on Boughs is unique in composition, a one-off original. The designs on the each butterfly is executed spontaneously, each different from the other. Every piece a masterpiece.
The Boughs come in varying lengths ranging from 1.3 metres to 2.39 metres. The Butterflies can be customised to a collector’s requirement in terms of colour scheme. Boughs are cast in solid aluminium and polished to stainless steel finish and the Butterflies are laser-cut from stainless steel sheets and then hand painted in bold vibrant colours; each butterfly with its own unique design.
THUS THE JOURNEY BEGAN
While KY began as a sketcher and painter, he was drawn towards sculpturing. He felt challenged to shape and mould material into inspiring forms; to imbue energy and motion into inanimate forms. His debut of the Having Fun series was an unprecedented success and effectively launched him as an artist and a sculptor.
FISH OF PROSPERITY
KY’s Fish sculptures capture the beautiful and mesmerising poetry of fluidity and graceful movement of the fish. Each fish sculpture is a unique one-off creation. The auspicious symbolism of the fish is brought to the fore in KY’s sculptures of 9 or 18 fish. 9 and multiples of 9 are numbers that represent continuity in Chinese philosophy of numerology.
BIRDS & FRUITS & TWIGS
An ever popular series of Huang Sculpture is the ‘Birds & Fruits On Twigs’. The humble twig is given dignity when cast in solid aluminium and polished to stainless steel finish.
The polished twig becomes a dazzling stage for pretty birds and fruits, all cast in solid aluminium. Each piece is unique and comes in various lengths. The smaller pieces can be displayed as table top sculptures.
KY Huang’s Painting
AN INTERLUDE & THE BIRTH OF A SIGNATURE SERIES
Burnt out from two years of non-stop work, fulfilling orders, KY decided to take a reprieve. He took to his paint brushes again and it was during this time that he created his signature zebra barcode paintings. Clever and whimsical, this series that play on the black and white lines of the Zebra’s body and the barcode became an instant spectacular success.
