About Ian Jermyn

Ian JermynI’m an Australian born artist currently living on the west coast of Ireland in Strandhill, Co. Sligo. Much of my work draws inspiration from the littoral fringe – where the land meets the sea. Ideas often arrive spontaneously and are captured with pencil and paper. Finished work is achieved by using various media including ink, watercolours, relief printing, serigraphy and digital methods.

The sea and riding waves has been a visceral passion since early childhood. The discovery of surf mats was a paradigm shift for me in how I thought about and approached riding waves. This led to an opportunity to co-found Warpmats with custom surf mat builder, Matt Fedden. For Warpmats I contribute to the surface design of these inflatable surf-craft using acid dyeing and stencilling techniques.

Commission and collaborations are fun. If you’d like to discuss a new project get in touch.
