Artist of the Month

Ian Pyper is a self-taught life long draughtsman. His drawings are spontaneous creations, automatically drawn, although carefully expressed, and are highly reminiscent of aboriginal art and prehistoric cave paintings. The French writer and publisher Joe Ryczko coined the term ‘Future Primitive’ or ‘Paleolithique Moderne’ to describe Ian Pyper’s work. Ian believes this is a better way to understand his work than referring to it as ‘outsider art’ – a description he believes both describes him and his artwork but limits the viewer’s understanding at the same time. A confusing term these days, “It seems to be a bit of a cultural minefield.”
