A relative newcomer (I have only been drawing seriously for about 4 years).. I have been keen on the pencil... graphite and colored, for their portability, less-messyness, and ability to produce detail. My favorite subjects thus far have been: European cityscapes (namely Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, London, and Venice), portraits of famous people (philosophers, rock/reggae stars). In the past I have used old/antique postcards (that I used to buy by the dozen), as a source of most of my black and white cityscapes... and made copies of Rembrandts, Renoirs, and Chinese Art.. Lately, I have begun to use more original material in my work, using my own photographs (from my new digital camera, and old photos I took while in Amsterdam, etc.) as the source for my newest pieces.
Biography: Born in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA, on Jan 21st, 1974 as a dual national (USA and UK), Ian Rees was raised in the US, UK, and Philippines, and educated in Connecticut and Arizona, USA. He recieved a bachelors degree in History from the University of Arizona in 2000, has traveled all over the globe, and now resides (mostly) in Tucson, Arizona, nestled amongst the magestic Saguaro cacti. In addition to the originals themselves, I also sell archival (high quality) prints for a fraction of the original's cost.
