The Passenger is Ian Bode’s “Everyman” creation who simply appears anywhere that he goes. Ian brings a strong sense of cartooning to the world of fine art with his paintings which vary in size from tiny canvases and drawings to gigantic murals.
With The Passenger as his featureless muse, Ian portrays a simplified and positive world that is bound to put a smile on your face. His Chaplinesque star is an empathetic magnet that causes Ian’s drawings and paintings to connect in a unique way with the viewer. There’s a reason that you can find Ian’s art all over Charleston, even on the occasional debit card.
Ian’s work can be found at Art Emporium and at the Boulevard Tavern and Saturday December 12th, he will have a table at the East End Holiday Bazaar at the Clay Center from 10 AM to 3 PM. Drop by and by some of his art. You’ll be happy you did.
