Ivan de Monbrison’s paints mostly in black and white represent human beings more as shadows than as fleshy bodies. They are incarnated in the canvas but not yet fully present. Ivan hopes that people who have experienced pain and loss in life as absurd and meaningless will be able to connect with these ghostly shapes as images of the sense of precarity they may feel, giving it a depth that goes far beyond the simple pleasure of the eye. Ivan’s works—both poetry and paintings—have been displayed widely in Paris, USA, Finland, Belgium, Barcelona among others.
