Ethan Edvenson is an emerging fine artist from Des Moines, Iowa who emphasizes in mixed media drawings.

He aims to convey his own personal thoughts and humor, unrestrained choices, and high level of ambition in an invigorating way. This mindset is a response to the uninspired, superficial, and derivative media that people constantly consume. Ethan feels that when artwork shows personality and intention, it boosts the human spirit’s desire to broaden its understanding and grow.


Recently, Ethan graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2020 with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Drawing and a minor in Art History. Since then, his work has been accepted into a number of art exhibitions across the Midwest and festivals throughout Iowa. Currently, Ethan is working with the themes of eternity, time progression, and human potential in his mixed media drawings. He also makes the occasional experimental video and is trying to make a comic of sorts.
