Iain Macarthur at ABV

ABV presents “Entrance,” a solo exhibition of new original works by UK based illustrator Iain Macarthur.

Born in 1986 in Swindon, England, Iain became a fanatic of art at the age of eight in which he was introduced in art through watching a lot of cartoons and reading numerous comic books. “First ever comic I looked at was the Batman series. Since then I’ve been obsessed with drawing odd fantasy drawings and anime characters.”

His work can be described as surreal and unique. He has a powerful way of enticing the viewer’s undivided attention by using mostly pencil, watercolors, and pigment pens. He creates portraits of ordinary people but creates them in a unusual way by embellishing patterns and watercolor effects into the portrait to give a vivid explosion effect. Making their faces from something plain to something entirely bizarre and wonderful at the same time.

September 24th – October 17th
