Now 71 years old, born in Muar, Johor, Syed Ahmad Jamal's art career started in 1956 when he returned from England having graduated with the National Diploma in Design from the Chelsea School of Art in 1955 and a year later in art education from the University of London. Since then a long and challenging career would see him play a very important role, as one of the country's most important art educationists and as a leading figure in Malaysian Modern Art
