Aiman is a well-known artist in the Singapore art scene. He is known for his artworks that push the boundaries of high art and pop art.
Aiman Hakim who was born in 1984, is a Singaporean contemporary artist. He graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts (Painting) from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore in 2004. Since then, he has contributed to the art scene by exhibiting both regionally and overseas in the National Art Gallery (KL) and the Sunshine International Museum for the 2010 Songzhuang Art Festival, China amongst many others. His works have also received the attention of various awards such as Winston Oh Travel Award, the Georgette Chen Scholarship in 2003 as well as the Lasalle-SIA Scholarship in 2002.
Aiman’s ongoing series of works deal with the issue of conformity in society by exploring the seemingly “absurd” notion of self-individuation in a culture still dominated by communal ideologies. Fittingly, this emphasis also allows him to use his works as a platform for activism and transcend the nature of the culture which his artworks address.
