"Not Mine"

"Not Mine"

Aiden Dewar

I work with everyday objects available to everyone and recontextualise them into fine art objects. Highlighting the idea that some people have that artists have to come from wealthy backgrounds, as someone from a working class background I never took it into consideration that I would be limited by money. I only ever make work using stuff I have found, I like the idea of not being limited by anything - I am fully inspired by my environments and work within them comfortably. I want other people to not be intimidated of being an artist due to things like background or even technical ability. Art is about ideas and creative thinking. Nobody should be afraid to call themselves an artist.
