Aden Hynes

Aden Hynes – Sculptor

Aden finds each and every day exciting. Not knowing what project might come in and which material he will be working in is a complete mystery and a new learning curve every time. 

Aden attended Fryerns Comprehensive School in Basildon, Essex.  Rather than staying on in the 6th form he went undertook an Art Foundation course at Thurrock Technical College where he went through the roundabout subjects, Photography, Ceramics, Painting, Life drawing etc.  He then went to Maidstone College of Art in Kent where he studied Fine Art Sculpture and gained a BA Hons degree.

He was invited to carry on studying for an MA, but he felt he’d had enough schooling for the time being and was eager to get out into the real world.  He knew he wanted to create sculptures to put all his newfound skills into practice, but how to do it was a problem.

He decided to go freelance, so had a business card printed as a Sculptor and approached all the model making and theatrical companies, walking miles to meet with them in person.  Some of the companies he worked for are Madam Tussauds, English National Opera and Spitting Image, to name but a few.  This provided a wealth of experience dealing with new materials, the pressure of time deadlines, and dealing with clients.

After 7 years freelance and working every hour under the sun, he decided to settle down and raise a family in Basildon with his wife Sue so he leased workshop space in Laindon, Essex close to home.   Aden has been in his workshop for 28 years and creates sculptures for film, TV, theatre and all aspects of the leisure industries. 

Aden’s work will be on show in the garden of the Cater Museum which is accessed directly through the museum.
