Aidan Urquhart was educated at the University of Western Ontario and Fanshawe College in studio and art theory. He has been exhibiting his work across Canada since the early 1990s. Fascinated by the dynamics of communication, Urquhart explores with colour, images and ideas that at first glance, might seem at odds with each other. He has completed residencies at the McIntosh Gallery-University of Western Ontario and the Banff Centre for the Arts. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections including The Winnipeg Art Gallery, Museum London, The McIntosh Gallery, St.Thomas/Elgin Art Centre, The National Archives- Ottawa, and the Canada Council Art Bank.
