Description: Abstract shapes that may resemble sprouts of wheat.
Notes: The theme of Ian’s mural at Public Market was inspired by the notion of local food and agriculture. While his work is abstract – a combination of gestural marks in conjunction with the medium he’s working in – Ian explains that the natural shapes the brush makes are like building blocks. When put together, the shapes appear to represent specific images. A teardrop can look like a bird diving. Vertical lines appear to be sprouts of wheat.
