Ian Shults was chosen as #35 on the Oxford American's Top 100 Southern Artists in 2012.

"Finish this sentence, sure, but then put the goddam paper down or step away from the screen and haul your ass up West Sixth to see this first show by local painter Ian Shults. That's the best advice we can give a fellow citizen right now, as the Workman Gallery decks its walls with the deconstructed vintage reprobates and swingers, all mid-century seersucker and clandestine hanky-panky, rendered in stunning acrylics by this hotshot with a brush and a brain."

-The Austin Chronicle, July 9, 2010

Ian Shults' paintings forge fine art and the profane to tell sordid tales of debauchery with a sly sense of humor. His paintings recall a bygone era when the sheen of the American Dream dulled, and subversive behavior of illicit drugs and kinky benders were swept under the rug. Ian spent eight years as the Lead Illustrator and Head Sculptor at Blue Genie Art, where his ideas and vision accounted for much of the look of the various sculptures and illustrations produced at the shop.
