This fine art website is more for you interacting with what I have discovered and not me telling you what you must like or dislike.
The internet allows my hunger for truth, a platform of visibility to express what I see as a gifted artist. Not everyone has the same privilege which humbles me to be more fruitful with what I create. I am very grateful to be alive in this age where the world has become a global village like no other time in history.
Despite all the pain, anger, bitterness and lovelessness we see on the daily news I have discovered a healthy life attitude. We all have pain. We all need mercy. I hear heaven singing the tune to love one another mostly falling on deaf ears. My artworks and poetry show the pain of my journey through bitter memories, sexual malfunctions, gender confusion, mismanaged anger, drugs, hatred and mistrust of authority and parents, cynicism, hatred of religion and fear of Government agendas into a realm of truly experiential heartfelt forgiveness toward others, myself and God.
These artworks speak from the inner world, made visible, through a creative mind. My disciplines of expression are:
Painting, photography, leather craft, illustration, sculpture, exploring sciences, design, food, music, and poetry.
“Truly, I am a fortunate man”. ~ Thank you, Jesus,
Ian Anderson Fine Art (IAFA) is an invite into the fine art accolades and transparent journey of Ian Anderson through his caravanserai on planet Earth. The 20th and 21st-century artist.
Like a little boy in an *aging suit, I have a lot of playing to do before I leave this planet for the next bus stop. Before reaching that bus stop this fantastic and rich life offers me an opportunity to overcome the odds and excel at something good. My dream is to be teachable and waste no opportunities discovering what is good, natural and supernatural, as seen through the eyes of a wonderful God who has given us his life on this extraordinary earth.
*An aging suit is only temporal but the spirit is eternal. Because the spirit doesn’t age, this little boy can play forever.
The firmly held belief embedded in all images of this Gallery is :
“The greatest gift God gave to man is not sight; it is a vision. The eyes function is the sight. The spirits function is the vision. Natural eyes see the world. Spiritual eyes, the heart of man create the vision for living. Embedded within every spirit is a desire hungry to discover something true to idolize and what we idolize will either destroy us or create a life worth living.” ~ Ian Anderson

About the artist and available Fine-Art pieces
Ian’s inquisitive search for truth and a transparent relationship with Jesus inspires these artworks.
Ian works mostly in oils, supported by photography, illustration, leather art, sculpture, allegories, and poetry. Prayerful inspiration is a habitual practice in all his work with thoughtful aspirations embedded to motivate and challenge our views of life.
Any insights he includes without judgment, condemnation or shame. In the quest to express known truths the works also explore cultural and indigenous diversities.
Without wanting to offend anyone, these works are what they are.
Art through the ages is an indelible part of humanities want to express thoughts and hunger for expression through images. Viewing rock carving, language hieroglyphics, sculpture, painting, cultural fashion, illustration and now digital illustrative photography you see echoes of times gone by and visions of futures dreamed. The human spirit seeks meaning and purpose in life. In these pages, the passions, philosophies, dreams, and inspirations are Ian’s legitimate insights and discoveries.
Ian gets to share his 20th and 21st-century journey with you. This privilege he treats as a gift and an honor.
His inspirations are Dali, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Jesus, Da Vinci, Monet, Escher and multiple others in sport, politics, business, faith, music, and education ….. from all walks of life.
Ian’s words “I find I am in a rich line of wonderful visionaries. My work will not be pleasing to all but I trust others will delight in their uniqueness, for its own sake. Knowing this to be true, I will not compare my work with any other because my work will find its own unique place”.
As free will beings, you make your own judgments as you see his journeys unfolded in their progression from a privileged beginning through, drugs, depression, confusion of identity, bitterness, and anger to one of abiding peace, success and the assurance of Gods favor in his own skin.
Ian Anderson is a very happy creative.
Don’t hesitate to inquire about the variety of reproductions offered.
