Australian-born painter Aida Azin is an Adelaide based painter with a Filipino-Iranian background. Her paintings speak openly from an individual perspective as well as a contemporary global view to create a balanced dialogue on the importance of connection with heritage and identity. Aida explores the idea of developing one's own individual voice by drawing on origins to share stories and messages of protest.
Painting is Aida’s primary artistic medium. She creates artworks that simultaneously achieve balance and resolution while retaining spontaneous and expressive qualities.
Aida has been exhibiting artworks since 2013. In 2015 Aida graduated from the Bachelor of Visual Arts (Adelaide College of the Arts, SA). Aida was awarded funding from Carclew Youth Arts for a cultural exchange project in Manila in 2016. This led to her first international solo exhibition at Project 20 in Manila, the Philippines and subsequently, was invited to show the exhibition at Fontanelle, Bowden (SA).
Since 2013 Aida has been exhibiting in group shows held in Adelaide galleries such as Hill Smith Gallery, Light Square Gallery, the Adelaide Town Hall, the Adelaide Botanic Garden's Bicentennial Conservatory, and Artist Run Initiative's such as Tooth and Nail, Fontanelle, the Mill and Floating Goose.
