Self Portrait, 2019


Ivan Guzman was born and raised in LA, and after being a vagabond for a few years, he now spends his life in Philadelphia. Ivan create Conceptual Still Life, with an emphasis on environmental toy portraiture, and Portraiture photography while also pursuing personal projects.

Following along the lines of one of his heroes, Peter Parker, Ivan decided to pick up photography and explore the world through the lens. Being a nerd and a geek made him find pleasure in creating scenarios for his toy collection and creating his long-term personal project, In This Twilight. When he is not working on making art, he is playing video games and riding his bike around town.

Ivan uses one of his favorite quotes to guide his art and life:

An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way.
— Charles Bukowski

Ivan has worked for clients like Swiss Farms, Jet, and AnaOno.
