Aidan with his work "Brain Storm"

Aidan's moving and challenging multi media exhibition drew a large crowd for his talk and book launch Saturday 5th April. View from the Top was proud to host Aidan's acclaimed & thought challenging exhibition.

Reality Tester Aidan Shingler has worked in the field of visual arts for 30 years. His work is imbued with signs, symbols, synchronicity and significance. He has exhibited throughout the United Kingdom, including: Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art, Durham Cathedral, Kent Institute of Art & Design, Bournemouth International Conference Centre.

He campaigns to reform the mental 'health' system and highlights Human Rights violations within the psychiatric establishment. His new book - One in a Hundred - explores the spiritual and creative potential of ‘schizophrenia’ and how those labelled as such are treated by psychiatry. The accompanying multi media exhibition of the same name, also addresses these themes.
