IAN STEVENSON

"Visually striking, there’s a twisted sense of fun – along with what can only be described as a ridiculous sense of menace - in the work of Ian Stevenson." - Gavin Lucas, Creative Review.

Ian’s commissions include; Tate Modern, Perrier, Paul Smith, MTV, E4 Music and now Oomph. We wanted to know more, cue curve-balls!

Twisted art without pomp, that’s how I describe your work, what’s your take?

Ian-5

Yes that sounds good, I like to cut through the shit and get to the point.

From where do you draw your inspiration?

Just by seeing things in my everyday life and reacting to them.

Which artist do you most admire?

There's this guy called Stevenson or something or whatever, I like his work.

Do you think you will ever been sectioned?

It is a possibility.

Which piece of your work is your favourite?

The more swear words the better.

Who has been the best client to work with?

Most clients let me do my own thing and let me run free through the sunny fields with a flower in my hair and that is brilliant.

Is there a message you are trying to preach?

Open your eyes.

Which question you’ve wish you’d been asked, but haven’t?

Would you buy your own work?

Where would you most like to see your work?

In the bin at Tate Modern.

What has been the reaction to your new Oomph business cards?

People like them very much and I've been giving them to strangers when I travel home after an evening of beer.
