Ian has been part of ConArt since the very beginning. Not only is Ian an experienced artist and teacher, he is also the Manager of King Street Artworks in Masterton.
Ian is on the ConArt steering group and brings a great deal of operational rigour to our organisation. Ian can be credited for most of the hanging and display of the gallery artwork each month, plus the hanging of gates and fire extinguishers.
Ian's 'robot' paintings have become quite famous, we can't get enough of them. One customer commissioned 3 at once! But for now he has moved on to something fresh and we can't wait to see more of what he does.

"I am a painter of paintings some described as quirky, surreal and full of humour.
"I describe myself as Mr Bean and George Clooney’s love child. Desperately normal on the outside and a little irregular on the inside. Or is it the other way round?
"My work reflects society’s dichotomy between spiritual conjecture and materialist obsessions. Hehe… not really… it is really a mash up of anything that appeals on the day but particularly 50s sci-fi, antique toys and anything retro. The Challenge is putting all those things into one cohesive painting."
- Ian Chapman, Masterton
