In his first solo exhibition, Aiman explores the ‘absurd’ notion of self-individuation, in a culture where communal ideologies still dominate. His works involve the repeated use of iconic representations of ‘a perfect man’ in different stages of his life – various Ken dolls that have been generated over the years, ranging from vintage to the very recent. A personal friend of ours, Aiman has always been in love with his oil paints and canvases. Ages 4 and up marks a milestone in Aiman’s artistic vision and identifies with his perseverance for leaving the corporate world to do what he truly is passionate about.
