Ian McDonald

The chaos of Urban life, the unpredictability of Canadian weather and a love for the unknown. Ian McDonald draws inspiration from these aspects of his life to create a spectrum of colourful, intense, and modern pieces. Working mainly with Acrylic and Canvas, Ian implements geometric details, solid colours, and torrential backgrounds to create pieces of aesthetic beauty some with pop-culture references, political undertones, and historical inspiration. From obsessively painting sunsets as a child to exploring the thriving art scene of Toronto, Ian has cultivated a style that changes painting to painting while still capturing the same notion – “Life imitates Art.” For commissions or other inquiries please contact: ianvain@gmail.com
