Ivanhoe is the only one in the world who creates mosaics from aluminum. He was also a pioneer in recycling aluminum cans to create his works in the early ’80s. During a successful career, Ivanhoe’s art has been featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not!—appearing in national newspapers, and has been showcased in galleries and magazines worldwide.
