Inspired by the surrounding landscapes of rural Cumbria in the UK, Ian Heslop creates dynamic and bold large-scale abstract and figurative oil paintings.

Blending analogue and digital methods, the works evoke dreamlike atmospheres which ask the viewer to consider compositions that deal with the subconscious and abstractions.

Inspirations include graffiti, spoken word, sci-fi aesthetics, extensive travel, modernist architecture and progressive music.
