The Corporate Art Awards trophies have been created by Anniketyni Madian.
Anniketyni Madian is a Malaysian born Sculptor who started her art career in 2008. She loves working with a variety of woods & it’s the main element in most of the sculptures she creates. Her attention to detail and finishing is where she spends the majority of her time in her creations, perfecting every detail.
Thoughts & ideas behind many of Anniketyni’s sculptures are taken from drawings & the Pua Kumbu textiles of native Sarawak. Incorporating traditional designs & patterns with her own modern interpretation, Anniketyni’s sculptures take on a life of their own.
Deep within Anniketyni’s heritage, the Pua Kumbu textiles of the native Sarawak, woven by Dayak woman are incorporated in many lifecycles rituals and special events including child birth, coming of age ceremonies all the way to burials. By weaving Pua Kumbu it represents a deeply spiritual & socio-religious undertaking. It’s considered a sacred activity mandatory for all Iban women & establishes womanhood & value in a society that links spirituality into all aspects of daily life.
By using Pua Kumbu designs as a starting point in many of her sculptures, a strong Sarawakian flavour shines through Anniketyni’s works.
