Ian Philip is a painter and plastic artist born in 1986. From his childhood, he likes to walk in the studio of his grandfather, himself a painter. Passionate about painting, drawing and the automobile, he began his professional career as a body painter. A few years later, he decided to settle on the French Riviera where he worked as a painter on yachts.


This luxury experience is very enriching for him but the desire to create becomes more important, as a vital need to express himself. It is then naturally that he finds his native region and opens his workshop there. Self-taught, he expresses himself through the customization of objects and furniture. After many years of discreet creations, Ian is moving towards a much more personal work.


Lover of colors and materials, his style is more like an exercise in high fashion. Resin, plastic, wood are his favorite playgrounds. Inspired by the Pop Art movement, Comics and the consumer world, it is not uncommon to find one of these references in his works. Big names like Mondrian, Keith Haring and Andy Wharol also find a place in its colorful world.


His works are now exhibited in several galleries in France (Paris, Reims, Nice and Lorient) and very soon abroad.
