Ivan de Monbrison was born in Paris in 1969, his father, a French Protestant, and his mother, an Egyptian Muslim, were both mixed with Jewish origins. His interest in art can be linked to a very liberal artistic education, focused on the art of Africa, and Oceania. This left him with the desire to pursue the question of what art meant in the old days, and how this can be dealt with in our modern and absurd, technological world. Ivan's work has been shown in various countries.
