'Juxtapoz' & BAM! It hit me like a Batman punch. There were images I understood, images I could relate to. Artwork that made sense & represented me. Knowing that 'my' art was alive & kicking has sent me on a quest to look for artist & works of art in which we all can see a little bit of ourselves. With each new installment I'll be aiming to do just that. Sit back & enjoy the ride, I know I have been.
Artist Ian Francis was born and bred in Bristol, England this self proclaimed mixed media artist graduated from the University of the West of England with a degree in Illustration in 2001. Francis who draws inspiration from the multiple stimuli society that we live in uses cinema, pornography, street culture, and images sampled at random from the Internet to create his abstract dream like apocalyptic visions. He had his first solo exhibit back in 2007 and since then has consistently shown phenomenal work every year. His next show will be here in NYC at the Joshua Liner Gallery in March of 2011. Do not miss the opportunity to check out these amazing works of art in person, I know I'll be first in line.
