About Ian

I am Ian Melgarejo, I am a Miami-born interdisciplinary collage artist and photographer. In 2016 I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from New World School of the Arts. During my time in NWSA I was already experimenting with boundaries in photography with light painting, long exposures and multiple exposures. My education encouraged me to further push myself into other mediums where I then took an interest in collage and mixed media work.

I use my photography as a means to clear my thoughts. I walk long distances around the city of Miami attempting to capture it's essence and identity. I use my collages to express my ideas, questions, and voice. Experimenting with various methods such as carving, encaustic wax, digital collage, and beyond, I can freely explore any topic than I choose.
