Footnotes

  • Ian Francis is Bristol born and bred, and has inevitably been inspired by the creative atmosphere of what is one of the hubs of UK street art. His work features an intriguing amalgamation of pure abstraction and tight realism, featuring figures and parts of landscapes amongst areas of explosive color and tone, in a strange harmony of violence and style. The images that he uses are often culled from mass media and the Internet, and frequently portray scenes of hedonism or its exhausted aftermath. Although he has exhibited in London, Sydney and Los Angeles, Francis continues to live and work in the city of his birth.
