Ian the Painter

North Carolina

Ian is a muralist specializing in archival community murals but has spent the last decade of his almost 30 year career traveling the United States creating murals that speak to the needs of various communities.

On the road, he seeks to create lasting narratives that serve to uplift and educate various areas and does not discriminate on delivering these to small unseen or underappreciated areas.

While you can find his work in major cities, the lion’s share of his efforts are located in small and underappreciated places that he feels actually need it the most.

He has donated large portions of his professional income as a muralist to giving murals to underserved communities and schools all across America with a sharp focus on illuminating historical wrongdoing, racial inequality, and other community issues.
