Aidan Urquhart is an incredible contemporary artist and thinker who playfully reconfigures segments of contemporary thought into fun, witty and colourful visual representations.
Aidan Urquhart describes his influences and approach to artmaking, “As a full participant of the media, internet and television age, I take an acute interest in the information overload that bombards us on a daily basis. My approach is to confront and cannibalize this information and distill it through my work in collage, drawing, painting, installation, mail-art projects and multi-media. The results often surprise even myself and is a great testament to the idea that the celebration of the every day can rise above the rudimentary and shine light on what we often overlook or take for granted.”
Aidan Urquhart was educated at the University of Western Ontario and Fanshawe College in studio and art theory. He has been exhibiting his work across Canada since the early 1990s. He has completed residencies at the McIntosh Gallery-University of Western Ontario and the Banff Centre for the Arts. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections including The Winnipeg Art Gallery, Museum London, The McIntosh Gallery, St.Thomas/Elgin Art Centre, The National Archives- Ottawa, and the Canada Council Art Bank.
