Aaron was a hairstylist before a motorcycle accident left him paralysed from the neck down. Overcome with grief, Aaron spent years trying to come to terms with this new reality without much success. A chance meeting with another tetraplegic introduced him to the therapeutic world of art. Slowly but surely, Aaron discovered his hidden talent for painting and received formal training from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA). Aaron’s practice in oil is steeped in realism as he draws inspiration from nature. Every stroke deftly captures his subject in precise detail.
