Aida Azin is an Adelaide-based painter with a Filipino-Iranian background. In 2016 she was awarded funding from Carclew Youth Arts to engage in a cultural exchange project in Manila, the Philippines. Her practice is informed by post-colonial theory, the importance of self-representation for people of colour, and engaging with cultural heritage. Aida’s artworks have been featured in several commercial and Artist-Run galleries in Adelaide and abroad. Aida is a graduate of the Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design degree at the Adelaide College of the Arts (2015). She is currently undertaking her Honours in the Bachelor of Art and Design program at the University of South Australia.
