Storytelling on tanned cow leather is one of Ian’s many art disciplines.
Ian Anderson Fine Art leatherwork is unique and created to last by using the best products and archival treatment available. Ian combines photography, illustration (traditional and digital), painting, carving, embossing and dying skills. The leather art is mounted on hardboard and brushed aluminum sign ply.
Leather carving origins
The art of leather tooling has been enjoyed for centuries and the origins are lost in history. The original craft involves carving, tooling, and dying simple designs on treated animal hides.
The completed leather artworks are photographed and digitized for reproduced on multiple media. These include Giclee canvas prints, fine art papers, corrugated iron, fashion wear, home wear and entertainment games.
