About

Anton Ian Nielsen (b. 1992) is a Danish painter and artist. His works take inspiration from the subconscious, quantum physics, subcultures and art history. Like Los Angeles’ Lowbrow movement, which tried to comment on the cultural trends of the time with humorous, “low-culture” references, Anton Ian also tries to comment on modern society with the symbolism of popular culture. Often with a humorous expression, he paints and creates works that connect and excite with a colorful palette and references from both art history, graphic design, street art and popular culture. Often animals and people in existential longing. In the same spirit, he has published four children’s books and a poem collection with the publishing house Fleksibel.

Anton Ian Nielsen (f. 1992) er en dansk maler og kunstner. Hans værker tager inspiration i underbevidstheden, kvantefysikken, subkulturer og kunsthistorien. Som Los Angeles’ Lowbrow-bevægelse, der forsøgte at kommentere på tidens kulturelle tendenser med humoristiske, ”lav-kulturelle” referencer, forsøger Anton Ian ligeledes at kommentere på sin samtid med det tilgængelige symbolsprog fra populærkulturen. Ofte med et humoristisk udtryk maler og skaber han værker, der skal forbinde og begejstre med en farverig palette og referencer fra både kunsthistorien, grafisk design, streetart og populærkulturen. Ofte dyr og mennesker i eksistentiel stillingtagen. I samme ånd har han udgivet fire børnebøger og en digtsamling på forlaget Fleksibel.
