Artist Statement

Ivan's artwork reflects the current state of society, and different themes whether it be political, emotional, pop culture or even spiritual. In order to bring this to light he has created a universe of fictitious and very colorful characters thru the persona of The Lost Artist "TLA". These character serve as pieces of himself as if his brain were to explode and different fragments meta morphed into such characters. Although very pleasing to the eye, the meaning that goes behind each piece dives into much more serious and deeper issues that contain us humans in the holes that we live in today to be better understood and thru this become aware of such things.
