A Boy Returns Home Not Realizing How Much He’s Changed
Using a variety of mixed media including oil, acrylic, ink, charcoal and graphite, artist Ian Francis creates fantasy-fueled scenes that are filled with mystery and intrigue. In 2010, he released a new set of work that looks as if he's shifted his style from dream-like to cinematic.

The UK-based painter will be headlining his first solo exhibition at the prestigious Joshua Liner Gallery in New York. Called Fireland, it will consist of over a dozen new mixed media works on canvas as well as a selection of new works on paper. The show will run from March 3 to April 2, 2011.

Love the descriptive titles he includes with each piece.
