Ben Allen is a contemporary artist, known for his distinctive Pop paintings. His gestural artworks channel a vivid subconscious energy and stream of aesthetic influences, using screen printing techniques to build highly structured, graphical images, which are considered, repetitive and refined alongside a subconscious onslaught of actions, hurled at the canvas until a composition emerges and finds its place.
“Through my paintings and prints, all aspects of the human condition find a place and I want people to be able to relate by looking and finding something familiar within the abstracted marks and brightly coloured, graphical imagery.”
‘POPAGANDA’ will present an energetic collection of original paintings, prints and 3D works featuring a mash up of popular culture, our favourite childhood characters and a whole lot of colour. From crushed spray cans to 8ft mixed media paintings, this show invites you into a world that critiques the dull and the mundane, challenges mainstream media values and inspires a sense of freedom.
