Biography

Born in Scotland, and raised in London, photographer Ivar Wigan (b. 1979, UK) approaches narrative and portrait scenes with a nuanced sensitivity to social interaction. Through imagery culled from intimate relationships and interactions with his surroundings, the artist aims to break down barriers that society has built up around minority and youth cultures. The impetus to document comes from a place of admiration and through this drama and atmosphere are heightened in communal rapport. Wigan received his MA in History of Art and Ancient History from the University of Edinburgh. 2015 saw the release of The Gods, a series the photographer created during time spent immersed in the North American sprawl of Atlanta, Miami and New Orleans. It was here that the artist first became absorbed by the mutable youth and music cultures that unfold out of the African diaspora.
