Ian Chapman – Coordinator

I am a painter of paintings some described as quirky, surreal and full of humour. I describe myself as Mr Bean and George Clooney’s love child. Desperately normal on the outside and a little irregular on the inside. Or is it the other way round? My work reflects society’s dichotomy between spiritual conjecture and materialist obsessions. hehe…not really…it is really a mash up of anything that appeals on the day but particularly 50’s sci fi, antique toys and anything retro. The Challenge is putting all those things into one cohesive painting.
