Aida Dolrahim (b. 1984), continually produces mixed media work alongside her freelance practice as a fashion stylist. Concerned with boundaries of art disciplines and how they overlap with other fields of visual culture, her work addresses themes of fantasy through the appropriation of a made-up fictional landscape, set against a backdrop of imagery that is both personal and culturally specific, ranging from fairy tales, glossy fashion magazines to horror films.
Dolrahim currently lectures within the departments of Fashion Media and Cultural Contextual Studies at LASALLE College of the Arts and also runs Ohmydays, a pop-up gallery dedicated to the showcase of new media works by a select group of international artists. She studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London, completing the MA Fine Art program in 2010.
