Aimuan’s art and design are driven by his interests in identity, perception, and human experience of self. He strives to make artistic endeavors relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for exploring consciousness and doing in the world. He believes Art and Design can be effective tools for solving problems.
Aimuan’s works span sculpture, user experience, product design, illustrations, painting, poetry, mixed media, and installation. Not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, his practice strives to explore the broader public sphere through brand engagements, interventions in digital space, social challenges, and issues of sustainability.
Aimuan was born into the human world at the stroke of midnight, Sunday morning, July 18th, 1982. He began expressing artistic tendencies at age three using twigs and broomsticks to draw endless patterns all over Grandma’s backyard.
After a successful career in creative advertising and experiential marketing, he decided to focus on his art and design practice as a means of solving interesting problems in the public sphere. He lives in Mississauga, Canada with his wife and kids.
Having been previously educated in classical European figurative painting, his latest works over the years depart from this realism-centric training and towards a more personalized narrative – one that allows him the freedom to choose from a broader pool of aesthetic systems.
He plans to develop an innovation & art studio in Ontario, Canada that is focused on harnessing the unique perspective of immigrants to solve problems.
