My name is Aiden Lee. I am an abstract painter, teacher and human advocate. I was born with multiple diagnoses; Autism, ADHD, Anxiety.
Up until the age of 4, I was unable to speak. Being non-verbal was so frustrating and made it difficult to communicate and express my thoughts and feelings with those around me.
That is when I found art.
For the first time, I was able to express myself fully and soon the words came flowing and it changed my life. I use different styles and mediums to create bright, bold colours, with a blend of different textures which inspire the mind.
Did you know?
My artwork hangs all over the world. Every art piece is original and reflects the unique emotions, influences and inspirations that impacted the process.
From 2017-2021 I have taught over 3500 students in my My Art From the Heart initiative. Teaching the power of art and unleashing your emotions on the canvas.
Special Olympics Sweden is home to a piece that I did in collaboration with Dr. Frank Hayden, the Founder of Special Olympics.
I created the ‘2019 Community Spirit Awards’ for the town of Oakville. Celebrating community leaders that impact positive change.
Ontario parliament is home to a mixed media art piece - entitled ‘Leaf in Canada’.
The painting, ‘Evolution’ resides in Temple Grandin's home in Boston, Massachusetts.
The Art from the Heart painting created for 2019 WE Day was donated and auctioned off to raise money to support those in need and purchased by the Pinball Clemons Foundation.
The Iroquois Ridge Library in Oakville, Ontario is home to a 6 ft. canvas, entitled, ‘Story time’, combining recycled library books and mixed media materials.
The power of art
In 2017 I started an initiative aimed at volunteering to teach and inspire 150 students for Canada’s sesquicentennial. Since then ‘Art From the Heart’ has grown to huge leaps and bounds!
I have brought the power of art to over 3500 students all over Ontario and have expanded my classes to a virtual setting to include communities worldwide.
COVID-19 did not stop me! I continue to virtually teach kids to take their emotions and throw them onto a canvas. It is the first way I was able to communicate and I see how much it can change people’s lives.
