Winnipeg-based artist Ian August has presented his art in exhibitions across Canada for the last decade, including local group shows Supernovas (Winnipeg Art Gallery, 2006), 26/Two-Sicks/Too-Six… (Gallery 1.1.1., 2006) and All of a Sudden… (PLATFORM centre for photographic + digital arts, 2013). He has been awarded grants for his work from the Winnipeg Arts Council, Manitoba Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts. August received his Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) Degree from the University of Manitoba School of Art in 2004. In 2011 he completed his Master of Fine Arts Degree at York University in Toronto. The following year August spent several months in Berlin and the rest of Germany researching the Bauhaus school and the dissemination of its ideas to North America. This project resulted in a series of paintings and drawings shown at Golden City Fine Art in Winnipeg (2012) and in the current exhibit RE: BUILD THEM.
