About his Art of Caricature, Ivan says:.
“it is an opinion of the human face from the point of view of a third eye: the eye of the caricaturist. When I make a cartoon-picture, my intention is to emphasize the character by means of forms that become great or small, light and shade, gestures, joints. Everything combined is a simultaneously abstract surrealista architecture and undresses that all alive being has: a cartoon. Work with different materials: paper and linen cloth. I use the pencil, the charcoal, the watercolor, the acrylic and I swell and Digital Medium. I’ve never had the intention to mock and laugh at my cartoons, but for some it’s funny to see them.”
