BA Fashion Illustration, London College of Fashion 2018
Kian's work explores themes of identity. Exploring social, emotional and cultural perceptions of the individual and reflecting these perceptions back at the viewer.
Working instinctively with colour and applying oil paint with intensity and control, Kian's aim is to un-learn negative self-conceptions impressed upon us by social structures. Through this expression Kian hopes to educate the viewer, challenging ignorance and expanding racial awareness. The results are emotional, a regurgitation of the artists feelings and thoughts, sparce in etiquette but abundant in personality and freedom.
