About Stephen Ives (aka. Stefano Ives, Cloudboy)

Hi there folks, I'm an artist from Melbourne Australia primarily working in sculptural bricolage of toys, junk and scrap plastic models, I also do drawing (pencil, inks, sprays, stencil) as well as dabble in costume (

For me creativity/ art is all about play and doing, context and concept are very much a part of that but I don't get hung up on it as it can kill the process of getting on with the work and having fun, I mean who wants to see a Buddha crossed with a tank? who wants to painstakingly work out why before doing it? not me.

I also really dig teaching people how to make stuff and have developed some useful techniques and ways of thinking about creativity over the years which is why I'm setting up this Patreon.
By joining me you will be getting access to lots of great stuff like live streams, work shops (technical tips, hacks, drawing etc...) as well as updates on show progress and private projects.
Your patronage will enable me to spend more time in the studio doing cool stuff as well as afford the upkeep of my studio, things like rent, materials and tools, most importantly you will be reducing the time between my shows.

So welcome to my Patreon page, please get involved and enjoy my work.
68% complete
When I reach $400 a month I will be able to spend one more day a week in the studio, bringing the total to three. This brings my next show forward by approximately 6 months
