Ian Michael Gray is a full-rounded visual artist and inventor, currently residing in Oregon. From a very young age, Ian had been knee-deep in various artistic endeavors. This passion extended into his adulthood, manifesting into the creative phenomena that you see today. Gray’s artwork encompasses a broad selection of media that perfectly intertwine with one another through content, technique, and aesthetic. He finds himself influenced by science fiction, technology, space, and literature. His art is intended to show the beauty and light in subject matter normally seen as the contrary, and combines elements of technology, science and nature into a synergy of emotion and hypnotizing geometry. He is also an avid astronomer, and astrophotographer, and uses space and astronomy as a huge source of inspiration and wonder, and his own photography is often used as artist's reference for his paintings. His artistic repertoire includes paintings, sculpture, photography, and more. Gray has been featured in a slew of well-known art galleries in both Denver and Los Angeles, and has many upcoming shows in Oregon.
Ian's primary medium is acrylic paints on traditional canvas, although some of his work includes multiple mediums, both traditional, and digital. He believes using a mixed media technique is sometimes necessary to get a piece to its full potential. But he is primarily a traditional painter. In his part time, he runs a youtube channel and technology company named “GrayStar Technologies” when he builds working robotic creations, which are often incorporated into his work, and vice versa.
Ian's most recent book, “The Art Of Ian Michael Gray: Book 1” was just released in the new year, and is available at major book retailers, and features all of his best work from the past year. This marked a major accomplishment in Ian's career, and he hopes you will find as much joy in his art as he does.
