Ivan Jenson, "Ever since I was a young boy I have painted, sculpted and written poetry. In school my teacher allowed me to spend recess studying art books about Picasso. Art has been my first love, my obsession and my life ever since. When I ventured to New York with my art on a whim, I was suprised by the immediate positive response by the public and have been nonstop ever since. I came to live in Grand Rapids to rediscover my artistic roots. My artistic vision is about form, blazing colors and humanity. "
