Ian Bruce

Ian Bruce specializes in drawing and oil painting, with a particular focus on portraiture. Bruce toys with the theme of presence versus absence in these portriats. In one of his series, for example, the artist paints people’s likenesses over video-chat, thus challenging conventional definitions of a person’s image; he regularly takes commissions for these projects. RubiCANE (an anagram of IanBRUCE) is the pseudonym he has adopted for his pornographic artworks. 


Bruce studied at Eton College in Windsor and the Edinburgh College of Art. He is also the lead singer of the DJ/MC duo The Correspondents. He lives and works in London.
