Ian Marshall is a Kent, Ohio-based oil painter and photographer. His works and style are architecturally driven - structural elements and geometric aspects are the foundations for his compositions. Photographs of architectural elements and structures are documented extensively and then transformed into works of art. Ian has received numerous awards throughout Northeast Ohio such as acceptance into the GAR Foundation in Akron along with Best of Show at Art in the Park in Kent. Ian has also shown work at 78th Street Studios in Cleveland. Ian graduated with a bachelor's degree in Fine Art within a concentration of Painting from Kent State University in 2017.
