Growing up in Chicago, Artist & Sculptor Mark J. Ansier was inspired by visiting the Museum at the Art Institute of Chicago and by the art & architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright.
After acceptance into the School of The Art Institute of Chicago the artist decided instead to pursue a business development career, intending one day to return to his art.
The sale of his global company in 2006 opened the door to develop IronWaves Custom Iron Art, and make a lifelong dream come true.
An accomplished scuba diver & deep sea fisherman, the artist began by creating marine sculpture inspired by personal photographs taken on worldwide expeditions. Initially producing sculptural works for private & corporate clients within the scuba & fishing industries.
The artist said: 'Most of my early works are detailed pencil drawings. My work today is effectively these drawings come to life as truly unique 3D mixed metal sculpture. My artistic range has grown and I am now interested in a broad scope of projects which put my full skill-set to daily use.'
In the Austin, Texas studio Mark creates his beloved marine sculpture plus architectural masterpieces, abstract monument sculpture & much more.
IronWaves Custom Iron Art has grown into an Art Gallery & Design Studio which enables architects, interior & exterior designers & individual clients to clearly envision and bring life to unique pieces with color, texture & imagination.
It's been said that 'This Artist has a Healthy Disregard for the Impossible!'
