Ian Mason studied B.A (Hons) Fine Art (Sculpture) at Newcastle Poly and completed a PGDip in Interior Design at the University of Brighton. He now lives and works In Devon. He works from found images - old books, magazines and photographs or stills from video footage. Ian has a very loose and free drawing style that almost belies his clever and sensitive use of line. His breed portraits are stunningly effective and combine a touch of the traditional with a contemporary twist. For the most part he works in ink washes but occasionally introduces other media such as compressed charcoal to great effect. Prices start at £350 for a commissioned portrait.
