Ian Stevenson's work is both engaging and enlightening, using his view on the world to create distorted characters, murals, alternative slogans, animations and sculptures, he also customises photographs, as well as anything from coffee cups to record sleeves. His influences are from his surroundings, everyday life, and the TV from which he reflects the reality of living in the 21st Century.
Ian was born in Leicester in 1977, growing up in the suburbs which helped to form his opinions. Having left the Joneses behind with their new lawnmower, he then studied at Camberwell College of Art, London.
Exhibitions include shows at such prestigious venues as ICA, Tate Modern, Haunch of Venison, The Royal College of Art, Multiplied, Pick Me Up, One Dot Zero and regularly at the Pictures On Walls annual event Santa's Ghetto. He has exhibited in over 80 international shows including at the The Conran Shop Japan, Paul Smith Gallery Japan and Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux France. He has had numerous solo shows around the world, his first 'I Like Drawing' in 2005, and most recently 'Made in Broken Britain' at The Outsiders Gallery.
Having had numerous books published his latest book Now That's What I Call Art where he challenges the very concept of art. Often approached to give his thoughts and views he has lectured at numerous events including Pictoplasma's conference in Berlin, Visuelt in Norway and Glug in London, and Current TV also featured a documentary on Ian and his work.
His commercial clients include Microsoft, Perrier, Nike, Polydor Records, The Conran Shop, MTV, Warp Films, E4, Shane Meadows, Sony, Urban Outfitters, Nintendo and Paul Smith.
Stronger, faster, better and now with even more art than before. The unique subtle beauty of Stevenson's art is what makes him one of the most exciting artists of today.
