ARTIST: IDRIS VEITCH
Idris artwork has always been about inquiring identity, whether from the artist perspective or that shared with others. He started collaging while living in Japan as a way to address the feelings of not being able to fit in. As a “gaijin”, or foreigner, he was a canvas for long-held stereotypes about black people which not only proved frustrating but reduced them to an “other”. Creating became a healing outlet and positive way to acknowledge his own sense of self.
