Artist Statement

As a disabled and neuro-divergent artist, my aim is to bring vivid and strange imaginings to life. Recently, I have been using a blend of collage and photo-montage to create surreal and rebellious artwork.

The images I make are a mix of the uncanny and the everyday. Each piece is constructed to challenge the viewer’s assumptions. I want to encourage them to think about difference, see beauty beyond the mainstream and question conventional notions of ‘reality’.

Sasha Saben Callaghan is a digital artist from Scotland. She was a winner of the 2016 ‘A Public Space’ Emerging Writer Fellowship and the 2019 Pen to Paper Awards. Her illustrations have featured in many journals, magazines, and exhibitions. Sasha’s lived experience of disability is a major influence on her work.
