Ian Swanson is a New York based artist whose monochromatic paintings embody a sense of reticent nihilism and sentimentality.

Ian’s work was featured in solo and two-person exhibitions at Ashes/Ashes (New York & Los Angeles), MX Gallery (New York), Jack Barrett Gallery (New York), David Shelton Gallery (Houston, TX), Hot Wheels (Athens, GR), Simone DeSousa Gallery (Detroit, MI), among others. A Detroit native, Swanson organized exhibitions at Debt Collective (2007-2008) prior to founding ORG (2008-2010). After moving to New York City, he co-founded and directed hotelart.us from 2013-2014; and sex objex (2013-2015), a multi-disciplinary, aural/visual extension of his curatorial efforts and commitment to DIY community ethos.
