Project Description

Ivan Liotchev is an artist based in Durham, North Carolina and London, UK. He earned his MFA from the Slade School of Fine Arts, UCL, London (2011) and BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2004). Splitting his practice between painting and social-engagement, in 2010 he founded the International Collaborative Drawing Project (ICDP), a participatory initiative which uses drawing as a starting point for cooperative creation. Originating within a working-class community in South London, UK, the project now works with diverse worldwide communities ranging from Hopi Native Americans to Geneva bankers, developing drawing events, exhibitions, residencies, public art and multi-media explorations.
