Ivan Flores (he/they) is an award-winning textiles artist exploring identity and emotions tied to their personal experiences and how they navigate the world as a queer, Afro-Latino, second-gen immigrant based in Kjipuktuk, or otherwise known as Halifax, Nova Scotia. As a believer that identity is intrinsically tied to everything any individual does, Ivan relies on intuition in his practice, expecting that his intuitive choices will be directly influenced by who he is as a person. This extends to materiality, colour, process and technique in their work.
Ivan holds a BFA at NSCAD University, with a major in Textiles/Fashion. At NSCAD, he has spent his time experimenting with weaving, fabric screen printing, embroidery, beading, garment construction and pattern making.
