Artist of the moment……..Ian Davenport

 

Ian Davenport is a British artist known for his abstract and very colorful type of painting. Ian Davenport was born in London,  England in the year 1966. For his artistic education Davenport attended Northwich College of Art and Design located in Cheshire, England. The artist also studied at the famed Goldsmith’s College of Art located in London, England.

Davenport lives and works out of London, England.

Davenport was nominated for the Turner Prize.

Some key aspects of the process of creating for Davenport include the use of household glossy paint. This gives the work a very reflective and modern texture and feel. Another interesting idea is to poor the paint and let gravity be the architect of his work.

Price range information: Works range from $5,00o to $40,00o.

The artist is a both a painter and printmaker. For his painted works Davenport uses fiber board rather than canvas on most occasions.

In this clip we view a show that took place at the Paul Kasmin Gallery titled “Colorfall.” This exhibition is a great example of the style of this artist. Many examples of pouring paint, which is a signature style for the artist.
