About the artist
Obsessed in a dreamlike world, Aiman’s paintings aim to ignore realism and artistic conventions, blurring the lines between high art and low art. The universe in his make-believe world favours grace, sensuality and esotericism; staging mysterious icons, glorified, eroticised, divinised to the point that they integrate popular imagery. In this enchanted world, his subjects are born with the power of anti-gravity, and as this gift is slowly cycled back into the universe; symbolised through the use of flowers, energy is exchanged as they slowly ground themselves, to the possibility of a destination or the start of a new chapter. The story of these figures is told in a fairytale fashion, with both tenderness and cruelty, often interweaved with references of religious iconography, eroticism, mythology and children’s tales.”
