Aiden Taillard

Artist Bio:

Aiden Taillard was born and raised in the Helderberg area. From a very young age he was always drawing
and since then never stopped doing art both as an escape and side hustle. When it came to starting
working he chooses a career in graphic design and little did he know that this will come in handy in
his later decision to become a full-time artist. Looking at his work you can see a strong automotive presence and blue-collar workmanship. His roots come from working in his father’s workshop learning all things about mechanical engineering and also learning about panel beating as
well. ln, his earlier works you can see anything from animals, couples portraits and even sneaker
Now after exploring different subjects he has found his sweet spot and that’s showing the
the craftsmanship of the blue-collar worker in the automotive industry.

“Colour is an important element in my art and the feeling and mood that different hues and shades can convey and create.” – Jalaun Schultz

I am a self-taught artist that resides in Somerset West. Some of my earliest memories are of me drawing – creating has always been my passion. However, it took o few years to get back to that desired place.
After obtaining a qualification in law and spending a few years working – I finally had the time to breathe and focus on creativity after my daughter was born, as I stopped working full time.

Painting for me has always been a joy – a need to express the astounding beauty that often surrounds us often in the small and overlooked things such as a bright yellow lemon from my tree in the garden. The incredible detail in creation never ceases to amaze me and being able to interpret a fraction of that on a canvas is awe-inspiring.

My painting style is realistic, with the occasional nod towards abstraction, to incorporate additional unexpected elements – even if it’s just in the background of o particular artwork. Finding the perfect balance between realism and abstraction is a process that fascinates me – a journey, not just to point out what I see but also what I feel. Artists who inspire me have perfected balancing these opposite ends of the scale.

Additionally, colour is an essential element in my art, as the different shades and hues can set the mood or feeling of a piece.
