Born in Miami, Ian Fichman is a sculptor and illustrator who graduated from Florida State University. Ian’s artwork is a sardonic narrative of human existence. Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is uniquely assembled piece by piece, bringing its character to life. Their bodies are built around stylized skeletal structures, focusing on the framework of our being. The figures are mutually faceless, symbolizing our kinship as human beings through the shared struggles of our endeavors. His sculptures chronicle life experiences, each driven by different desires but similarly seeking a correct modus operandi to fulfill their own aspirations, if even possible. The solid, manufactured steel and the primitive objects they hold tell a story, implicating individual personas and highlighting their ambitions.
