About artist Ivan Toth Depeña


I am interested in pursuing (both as a process and a means of learning) a true intersection between different disciplines. What holds my attention is the more elusive moment of "fusion" when developing my work and installations… Regarding process and inspiration for "making," I am absorbed in combining the ideas of chance and intention as both mechanism and inspiration…

Ivan Toth Depeña (American, b. 1972) is an artist currently based in Charlotte, NC, after having lived and worked in Miami, FL and New York, NY. Depeña’s  design studio is known as Airboat, Inc. With a master’s in architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, Depeña’s artistic production is informed by his experience in art, architecture, technology and design, and encompasses a range of media.

Depeña has been working increasingly in the public art realm and maintains a rigorous and experimental, self-directed studio practice. He has exhibited extensively, nationally and internationally, in both solo and group exhibitions, and his work is held in numerous public and private collections, such as the Colorado Regional Transportation District, The Ohio State University, and the Nashville International Airport.
