Visual Art – Toronto, ONT

Hello, my name is Ian Stewart & I’m 25 years young, originally from Guyana, moved to Canada in 2001. I have pretty much been doing small sketches in my spare time since a young age.. but because of circumstances didn’t take it seriously, was never able to take classes or even think of art as a option for me. Tbh I haven’t had much of any support from anyone in my life, everything I know & have learned is from trial and error. I spent a year in Asia backpacking with my awsome girlfriend But unfortunately returned alone. To fill the void I started to do the only thing that truly made me happy (drawing). But I found sketching to be too simple. & it didn’t really feel new, so I figured if I could look at things and draw, painting, although very intimidating should be pretty much the same thing. & I had remembered my now x girlfriend & her parents urging me to try painting because they saw how easy it was for me to draw.. I guess In a way painting is a way for me to remember & forget her the same time. Tbh I have no lessons no guide I just picked up a brush & tried. I fell like I’m intranced now when I paint, it’s now my way of meditation & I can’t imagine myself doing anything else now! I have now only completed about 7 paintings but have received nothing but alsolute shock & support from those who have seen them. I don’t know y but I have a thing for selfies. Most of my paintings are reimagined selfies of people. I paint them the way I see them seeing themselves. ...more
