姜志名是香港演藝學院的舞台及製作藝術學院舞台繪景系前講師 (於1993 至2019年任教),現在退休了仍擔任兼任講師,將近30年的藝術教育工作,可謂桃李滿門。

 

他的繪畫藝術生涯極具傳奇,香港60年代及70年代初市民生活普遍艱難,早年到有電影廣告業四大天王之一的劉煒堂先生門下擔任學徒,學得一身好本領,追隨劉老師繪製當時得令的嘉禾、邵氏、洲立等院線,其中享負盛名的有荷李活、皇后、娛樂、皇都戲院等。80年代自立門戶,成為戲院廣告牌繪專業畫家,承接繪製戲院廣告及舞台繪景工程。承接繪製戲院廣告及舞台繪景工程,在最高峰期時,同時為廿多間戲院繪製廣告大牌,其中包括遠東集團旗下近十間戲院,當中有寶麗宮百麗殿舞台及知名的荔園內部份美工崗位。

 

90年代電影業式微,同時廣告進入電腦繪製時代,他轉而開展了在香港演藝學院作育英才的歲月。在職期間不斷進修,在80年代尾參加香港中文大學校外進修學院(現在是專業進修學院),畢業後與同學們共同成立一個藝術團體──《尋藝者》,姜志名是首屆會長,經常舉辦展覽及參與各式各樣的視藝活動。他經常利用暑假到法國、意大利和英國進進修繪畫技術及理論,及在繁重的工作壓力下同時獲得澳洲皇家墨爾本理工大學藝術碩士學位。2013年更成立一個推動社區藝術非牟利藝術機構《純心純藝》,希望公眾可以從藝術中得到優化其個人素養。

 

姜志名艱苦努力一生,曾為盧景文博士、何應豐先生、葉錦添先生等多位舞台著名導演合作,繪畫出許多出色的佈景,業餘還孜孜不息地進行個人創作,他的藝術動力永不止息。即使退休了,仍在香港演藝學院和香港藝術學院兼任講師以及作個別授徒,冀望將他努力鑽研的藝術得以承傳,不斷地繼續發光發熱。
