Craig Alan Paintings and Mixed Media on Canvas
Craig Alan’s thought provoking and detailed paintings contain a mix of raw technical ability and rich imagination. Working in a style with elements of pop-art the artist experiments with creative techniques, developing his subject matter and direction in the process.
A takeoff on his “Populous” series, which show hundreds of tiny figures forming shapes or milling about in nondescript cities, the paintings from his technology series shown here, explore the inter-connection between the masses and our gadgets and devices that we use daily.
Craig Alan was born in 1971 in Southern California. During his childhood he moved to New Orleans – an artistic city that helped influenced his creative path. The artist experimented with street portraiture, which gave him his foundation for accurately painting the human form. After earning money the Craig was able to pay for his education at the University of Mobile, Alabama. With his focus on studio arts, Craig earned an area award for academic excellence, and was featured in the university’s most prestigious exhibition, “Art with a Southern Drawl.”
