A little of Ian’s story
This website of fine art is a culmination of Ian’s long road to find creative purpose. Sometimes its personal raw, humorous, spiritual, religious, thought-provoking, provocative but always a feast of merging art and discoveries. I have discovered the inner world of beauty, peace, and joy and now, as an artist, the world of financial success creeps up on me with immense pleasure and relief. You have to be an alive artist to know the pain, poverty, and torment in the comment, “Artists don’t make money before they die”.
Daily I am learning new painting skills and painting visions to the canvas. I am also learning the value of who I am and how to capitalize on what I love creating. You are welcome to join me on my journey. Enjoy!
About the 20th and 21st-century artist
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.
Like a little boy in an *aging suit, Ian has a lot of playing and creativity to learn before he leaves this planet for the next bus stop. Before reaching that bus stop this fantastic and rich life offers him an opportunity to overcome the odds and excel at something great. Ian’s heart is teachable and he wastes no opportunities discovering what is good, natural and supernatural, on this rich and extraordinary earth.
Ian’s artworks show his passionate search for meaning and the joy of the God factor is visibly noted in all his works.
*An aging suit is only temporal but the spirit is eternal. Because the spirit doesn’t age, this little boy can play forever.

From the foundations of realism, Ian creates his works in visual parabolic realism although he is not adverse to having a fling in other genres. All things under the sun have a story and it’s in discovering their stories that Ian finds images to create his parables.
An allegory to inspire
“To create is the essence of Gods character”.
In the realm of creative enterprise, you need insight, open eyes, light, darkness, and the grace of God to live the dream.
“The world of spirit, made in the image and likeness of God, is to be seen and enjoyed on earth, as it is in heaven”.
The visibility of painting, photography, leather craft, design, illustration, sculpture, the sciences, food, music, and poetic words speak from the inner world made visible from a creative mind.
Embedded in all images is a firmly held belief
“The greatest gift God gave to man is not sight; it is a vision. The eyes function is sight. The spirits function is vision. Natural eyes see the world. Spiritual eyes, (the heart of man) create a 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.”
