Artist Statement

My name is Aaron Scott Griffin and I am an artist living and working in the East of England. 

I am currently study for an MA at Norwich University of the arts and I am a EAAF Dubery and Brogden Scholar 2021/2022..

My practice is primarily based in print incorporating text, signage, sculpture and installation. My research focuses on Function and Value within the context of contemporary fine art practice. For me, Function and Value within contemporary fine art practice is the recognition and affirmation of diversity within social/political groupings and the relativity of the audience’s position – which is to say that my primary interest is located within group dynamics and socio-political and economic intersectionality.

CV & Education

I am a creative and driven professional with demonstrable experience developing, managing and delivering projects and exhibitions for organisations and arts groups including Norwich Arts Centre, Print to the People and Norwich Castle Museum and Art Galleries. 

I am currently undertaking an MA in fine art at Norwich University of the Arts.
