In his attempt to understand the history of the ideal male body, Aryan researched Michelangelo's famous painting, The Creation of Adam. He found himself questioning why the first man on Earth was portrayed as white and muscular. Thus, he chose to reinterpret Adam with a darker complexion, just like his, with tattoos that tell his story. This piece isn't just about him—it's about all of us. We all battle insecurities, but not everyone shows it. This painting is his way of saying, "Hey, it's okay to be real." In viewing this piece, Aryan encourages you to see beyond the surface; to challenge the norm and celebrate our differences. In a world obsessed with appearances, he hopes that we can find the beauty in being genuine.

Artist Bio:

Aryan Arora (b.1999) is a Multi-Disciplinary artist based in Singapore. Aryan graduated from Lasalle College of the Arts Singapore, and has a degree in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths University, United Kingdom.

Coming from a society that enforces ideals on the individual, Aryan seeks to find new perspectives through his art-making, confronting personal issues and the pressures of today’s society. His practice revolves around challenging societal norms to seek out the expression of the individual voice. He is currently exploring mediums like body painting & performance art to confront society’s oppressive attitude towards bodies, and uses his platform to raise awareness of issues surrounding sexuality, consent, race, and gender. Aryan believes that art is a means of communication and commentary, and equally a source of healing and therapy for the heart and soul. In a society where true selves are often masked, Aryan’s works seek out a sense of freedom in expressing the real self, and healing the wounds of the inner world.
