Ian Art (born A. Daniele Iannotti, Milan, 1962) is a digital artist and multi-platform art producer. His production includes also creative commercial works for several of the largest and most famous corporation and nonprofit organizations in the world.Active for over 35 years, he has been through several avant-garde artistic movements always characterized by independent thinking, and personal languages and styles. Some distinctive traits of his latest work are conceptualism developed in project series and social and environmental engagement.
In the most recent years, Ian has been using fine art photography - experimenting and using different types of cameras, software, and digital processes - as one of the main creative and expressive tools.
Expert in graphics (such as art giants i.e. like Haring, Warhol, Magritte) and digital technologies, also uses this know-how as an expressive medium, as for example in the series Nine or in the series Underwater Venice where the asymmetric and different framing of the whiteboard for each subject is an integral part of the artwork.
Ian is based in Milan and operates worldwide. His artworks are in personal collections in the US, Europe, and Asia.
