Ivo Morrison, B. 1990, is a British self taught artist currently based in London. His work explores his personal desire for a greater narrative in contemporary painting. This new series of work that began in Toronto in November 2017 has pushed Morrison to delve deeper into his own thoughts and ask questions about society and the world around him.
Morrison wants to convey a part of life that he feels is often overlooked by most artists. Delight. To remember that for some people, some of the time, all of this is completely wonderful. With this new series of work Morrison wants to truly show what goes on inside his head. The more prominent feature of text in this series of work is to shows how he sees the world and the thought process behind each painting. Morrison asks, ‘Is all this fun or scary? Both.’
