This website is really a photo album, with a retrospective look at IceBear art in all its variations, and to help you know more about the artist himself, with a few stories, and a some highlights of his long career. If there is something else you would like to know, please go to the last page and send us a question by email.
Welcome to IceBear’s world, a place where imagination rules, wonder and curiosity are the order of the day.
Translation and meaning is often left entirely to you the viewer; interpret and take away from any individual piece of art what you will. Some will find magical beings, spirits or imaginary creatures floating through, others will find nothing but the most obvious. There is no right or wrong. But we have been told by many collectors that even years after living with a painting, one day when they look at it, they find things they have never seen before. Perhaps it is a trick of the light, a shadow, a fleck of dust, but that original sense of wonder is recreated, and we receive happy posts of thanks and appreciation!
Clicking on any of the small art photos,
