Collection: Beav Art


After training as a graphic designer, Ian began developing his signature style as an artist; experimenting with complimentary bold and bright images, he enfolds fragments of the modern world within vintage B-movies, mythology, folklore, and sci-fi themes.

Ian regularly exhibits within Brighton’s Artists Open Houses Festival and has displayed work in Worthing Museum, as part of the Open21 exhibition. You can also find an original Beav-Art on display at Norman Cook’s (aka Fatboy Slim) Big Beach Café in Hove Lagoon.

In 2019 Ian appeared as one of the contestants on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year. Continuing his passion for all things B-movie, Ian has also appeared as a zombie in the mini web series ZOMBN1 – based on the critically acclaimed Brighton based, zombie themed board game by Paul Stapleton. 

His works have been published by Penguin (within Doctor Who: 100 Illustrated Adventures) and you can read about his art and inspiration in an interview with Art Etcetera magazine, Altered Lands (Edition VIII). 

Ian’s larger scale installation work has included a murmuration of over 2000 origami cranes. In collaboration with Dr Christa Beesley the piece, called Souls to Paradise, featured paper birds handmade by people who had lost loved ones to the Covid pandemic. The installation, both a memorial and image of hope, was on show at The Spire, St Mark’s, a decommissioned church in Brighton. It received national coverage on the BBC and ITV

Since 2017 Ian has worked as a Resident Artist for Wellsbourne Healthcare CIC. Here he works to promote art within East Brighton and give local residents a platform for their work. This has included setting up Trailblazer, the first ever East Brighton art trail with Brighton Festival in 2019. He also curates exhibitions for local artists and groups.

Ian’s work can currently be seen in Sky Arts Artist of the Year Gallery. He is also a regular artist at Conclave Gallery and Jules Emporium in Brighton.
