Ian Pyper IAN PYPER is a frank and unaffected man. He is passionate about his drawings, yet claims to dislike the 'pretensions of the art world'. Perhaps this is why he hesitates to discuss his work, and resists the suggestion that there are psychological reasons behind his images.

Coming from a working class family from Liverpool, England he was encouraged to be a draftsman instead of an artist, so he could earn money from his obvious talent. This, while working with only two fingers and a thumb on each hand!

In 1981 he began devoting himself full time to his drawing.
His work evokes a strange spiritual and rhythmic pattern. Using somewhat tribal and recurrent symbols there is a mystical energy in his amazing drawings.
Now living in the South of England, PYPER continues to produce drawings for an ever-growing audience.
