The power of AND-- This movement is the new way of doing business in our global economy. Industries like marketing, technology, design, healthcare and fashion – to name a few – realize it’s no longer feasible to operate in silos. Rather, it’s data AND marketing; creativity AND technology; social AND business.
With a renewed focus, Triple-I’s director of art and digital design, Ian Lambert, is leading our “power of AND” renaissance. Ian will showcase his creative talents Friday, May 2 at REACTOR Design Studio, exhibiting his collection A Storied Brush – art reimagining literature. The exhibit is a glimpse into Ian’s view of classical literary works and genres. The series, stylized though mixed media, which combines water, acrylics and graphite, bring the stories, and the characters who comprise them, to life.

Ian's Thoughts on the Exhibit...
"After browsing classical literary collections on bookstore shelves, I was intrigued by the boundless illustrations of characters and figures in the books. While each illustration includes a slight variation in design, the truth of the character remains consistent – strengthening the words and bringing the story to life. I was inspired to launch my own graphic series of these stories and the characters who comprised them – it’s art reimagining literature. At the conclusion of my final stroke, I understood that these characters were never to be fully realized as illustrations; rather, they can only be imagined by the artist, brought to interpreted life with each stroke of the brush." -Ian Lambert
