Ian Francis (1979 – )

posted in: Artist biographies | 0

Multimedia artist Ian Francis has described his work as being about “pornography and news reports from warzones rather than sex and death.” His information-rich canvases, which often depict violent, urban scenes, contain both figurative and abstract elements—rendered in acrylic and oil, charcoal, and ink. An heir to the Pictures Generation, Francis makes socially conscious works that critique and celebrate a media-inundated age. He has exhibited extensively in New York and London.
