Aman Aheer (b. 1992) lives between London and Vancouver and works across several different media, including oil, grout, and stitch. Through a luminous colour palette, bold brush strokes, and recurring human and animal figures, Aheer’s practice functions as an examination of latent violence. He is particularly interested in exploring the paradoxical relationship between violence and the spirit as well as its descent into the everyday. Aheer received his BFA in Visual Arts from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2018. Recent exhibitions include Man is Not a Bird (St. Peter’s Church, Cambridge), The Glass Bead Game (MAMOTH, London), and Moving Througlines (Seymour Gallery, Vancouver). Aheer’s public commissions include Preserving Light at the Aga Khan Centre Gallery and a selection of works for the No. 3 Road Art Columns in Richmond. Upcoming shows include a solo exhibition at indigo+madder in London and a group exhibition at Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George, British Columbia.
