Super, super excited to have stumbled across Ian Francis. I haven’t liked an artist this much for a while and I am absolutely in love !
Ian Francis was born in 1979 in Bristol, England where he continues to live and work. Among his influences he names Reggie Pedro, Stanley Donwood and Dave McKean. Ian calls his work “apocalyptic” and he draws his inspiration from cinema, pornography, street culture, and images sampled at random from the Internet.
His solo exhibitions could be seen at the Lazarides Gallery, London (2010); the MTV Gallery in Sydney, Australia (2009); at Kinsey/DesForges in Los Angeles (2008); and the BLK/MRKT Gallery in Los Angeles (2007). His work has also been featured in the group exhibitions The Outsiders, Lazarides Gallery, London and New York (2008); and Free Parking, OKOK Gallery, Seattle (2007).
