Aida Azin is an Australian artist working primarily in the field of painting and installation. Her work engages with her Filipino-Iranian heritage and promotes the importance of pride in self-representation for people of colour. Azin graduated from honours in fine art at the University of South Australia in 2017. Most recently, Azin exhibited in the group show A sinking feeling (the politics of risk) at Blak Dot Gallery (Melbourne). In 2016 Azin received the Carclew Project and Development grant for research to travel to the Philippines where she held a solo show Everything is stolen at Project 20 in Manilla which was re-shown at Fontanelle (Adelaide). This was followed with another solo show in 2017 titled Enormous blind spots at Format (Adelaide). Azin has spoken on panel discussions addressing race, diasporic experience and the role of women of colour in feminism. She works from her studio in Footscray.
