Hello, I'm Ivan!

I am a native to the Washington D.C. area and am an active member in the local art scene.

I have a background in Art and Visual Technolog and like to use a variety of paint and digital mediums to create my artwork, drawing inspiration from pop culture, comics, movies, music, and street culture. Combining traditional art forms with digital media, and design aesthetics.

A common theme with my art work is the idea of characters without narratives. My idea behind this is that instead of relying on sequential art to tell a story, a simple splash image, itself can invoke its own narrative from the viewer. Leaving them to create their own backstory from their imagination.
