Artist Ian Hargrove paints alternating layers of washes and heavier pigment crayons in orange and lily-pond colors with shots of neon. "This piece was based on a photograph of a shadow cast on a concrete wall in summer," shares Ian. He draws inspiration from the particles locked in the concrete, and how color diffuses with distance.

Artist Ian Hargrove creates mixed-media abstracts with the overarching theme of the interconnectedness of life's moments. His intuitive and instinctual brushwork characterizes personal experiences and time shared with others through line, color, and interactions of various compositional elements. Ian ventured into the fashion industry as the creative director of his brand, giving him fascinating perspectives of beauty and honing his eye for color–the driving energy behind his paintings. "When I started to work more abstractly, the paintbrush felt right in my hand," shares Ian. "I started to make what has evolved into my distinct style of creating smaller colorful paint marks." He aims to bring the mood, tone, and even temperature of his inspiration to the space it occupies and its audience. Ian works from his home studio, a beautiful and amply lit pre-war condo on the north side of Chicago, with the company of his dog Clarke. He enjoys meditating, working out, traveling, and entertaining his friends with good food and quality time.
