Aerosol Acrylic on Glass.
Framed in a crisp white box frame, framed by
Nathan Ingram, or pseudonymously Dr Suits, is an
Ōtautahi-based artist and designer with backgrounds
in fashion and urban art.
Capturing the public imagination with range of
post-quake street interventions, Ingram’s creative
output has diversified over time, shifting between
settings and exploring processes and materials,
from bold ground murals to elegant paintings on
glass. This evolution reveals an adventurous nature
as a maker not beholden to traditions and as
comfortable embracing grand change and the
potential of chance as he is fixating on refining
ideas through repetitive process.
Ingram’s current work is grounded in the qualities
of line, colour, surface and texture, juxtaposing the
influence of the urban environment as a space of
transient presence and constant physical flux with
the calm repose of the studio. Varying in scale,
and at times spanning framed surfaces, Ingram’s
paintings grapple with the balance of order and
chaos, a sense of poise often masking more
energetic or physical exertions.
Ingram’s work has been exhibited in galleries and
museums around Aotearoa and overseas, including
the permanent collection of the Canterbury Museum.
His public works span various cities and he has been
included in festivals such as Taupo’s Graffiato (2021),
Ōtautahi’s Spectrum (2015) and Flare (2022).
