Reflections in the studio, 2022

Aisha Bridgman is a painter living and working in Surrey, UK.  Using mostly acrylics and mixed media, she transforms the physical world, using heightened colour.


During her BA in Fine Art, she visited New York to see the work of the Abstract Expressionists.  Two of her formative influences were the American painters Morris Louis and Clyfford Still. Following graduation, Aisha worked in contemporary art and within antiques at the leading auction house Christie's.  In recent years, she returned to painting and is now focused on her career as an artist.   


Aisha's expression and approach to colour, continue to connect people to her art.  Her paintings have been secured in numerous private collections within the UK, Europe, Asia and the US.  


Recent exhibitions include works shortlisted for Studio Cennen in Wales, The Lido Stores in Margate and through Art & People at Hollywood Road Gallery in London, where her paintings sold out.  


Aisha is receiving mentoring from Turps Art School for a year.  


She is currently showing in Works on Paper 5 with Blue Shop Gallery, 7 May to September 2023.
