Amin’s academic investigations into postcolonial theory and anthropology provides the impetus for him to produce artistic works which constantly questions and challenge the normative notions of class, ethnicity, identity and gender.

Amin believes that young arts practitioners must take ownership of their cultural traditions but must also become leaders in creating artistic works that are innovative and relevant to an evolving landscape.
