Aiden Milligan is a painter who lives and works in Edinburgh. Milligan’s consciously naïve style brings humour and lightness to retellings of his experiences of growing up in rural Southwest Scotland.

In this new series, the composition tends to accentuate the position of the observer, partly alert and always amused - one who has come to experience  the absurdity of adult disenchantments with tenderness.

Milligan says of "Leaving For the Big City":

This painting was inspired by a man from a village near where I grew up who would travel to the city each morning for work. He would take a big carton of water with him that he would pump from his garden each day, showing it off with pride to his urban co-workers. He would claim that his water was purer than any other, but was viewed wrongly by the city folk as a country idiot. Joke was on them though as he could always come home to his water.

30cm x 30cm. Acrylic on canvas. 2022. £225
