Ian Tweedy

Milan-based American artist Ian Tweedy began his career as a street artist, finding success and inspiration in Germany on the streets of Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, and Weisband. Over time, Tweedy moved his graffiti art techniques indoors, using personal items, historical objects, and documents of the past as the canvas for his bold graphic interventions. Tweedy's immersive installations include works in a variety of media including video, drawing, and painting. A deep concern with history is pervasive throughout Tweedy’s work, much of which is informed by his life of moving from place to place and never really developing deep roots with any one country or city. In his own words, “I always felt I lived on foreign territory . . . As a result, it is difficult for me to take on a particular type of cultural past. I was forced to adapt continually to different cultures, and this lack of roots led me towards the challenge of recreating a personal history."


Tweedy's work has been shown at the Prague Biennial, and in group exhibitions at the Museo MAGA and the Museo Cantonale d’Arte Lugano, among many others.
