Ian Scott was born in 1945 in England and came to New Zealand in 1952. He studied at the University of Auckland School of Fine Arts, graduating with Honours in painting.
He is best known for his series of lattice paintings. Although they are abstract, they have pop and local connotations. Scott said "I happen to like the suburban landscape, with its neatness, bright colours and clean edges." Many viewers see something of that in his abstractions.
Ian passed away in 2013.
