Ian approaches his work with a quiet determination. He merges mythological and historical stories in his intricate illustrations and paintings. His work is inspired by current events in the news and he makes art as a way to share his commentary about the world and theories for what the future may hold. He isn’t afraid to explore the darker sides of the collective conscious.
