Mark Andrew Allen (paintings)
Allen is a second generation artist who has been painting for over 30 years. He studied at Parsons School of Design in NYC, Art Center in Pasadena, CA, and Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. His work has been shown at four different museums and over 20 galleries in the United States. He has an art rep in Germany to represent his art in Europe. His powerful paintings combine type, texture and popular culture in a way to create a visual dialogue with the viewer.
In the artist’s own words: “I combine my passion for life with my attraction to vivid color to express my humor, energy, and daily observations and breathe life into ordinary subject matter. I go on a journey with each piece that I create, and the outcome tells a story celebrating life and all of the magic and wonders of it.”
