|Aki Hassan is a multi-disciplinary artist who shifts between drawing, printed matter,
They are invested in how forms, materials and objects encounter one another in both concrete and metaphorical
terms, and how personalities are revealed in the process, surfacing paradoxes and unexpected details. This feeds
into a curatorial interest in arranging them in a space, in this way exploring their interrelations. They see the process
of making as a tool, to reflect on their support systems, to locate strength, shifts and imbalances in exchange.
Aki Hassan has taken part in both local and international exhibitions, such as An Exercise of Meaning in A Glitch Season (National Gallery Singapore, 2020), Pig Rock Bothy Residency & Exhibition (Scottish Gallery of Modern Art, 2019) and SCOUT: Emerging Art Practice, Singapore (Gillman Barracks, 2015). They are a co-founder of a small distro-press, known
as Power Couple Press, which primarily works with comic, zine and illustration artists based in both Glasgow and Singapore (powercouple.press). Through this, they have been platformed at various book & art festivals across the UK, such as Glasgow Zine Fair (GZF), East London Comic Art Festival (ELCAF) and Edinburgh Comic Art Festival (ECAF).
