Glazed Original Painting on Deep Box Board
40 X 40"
Born in 1971 in California, Craig Alan’s artistic talent began to emerge when his family moved to New Orleans in his youth. It was here that his capacity for detailed visual interpretation took root. Taking inspiration from photographs of sixth floor balconies, he observed the shifting shapes in the crowds below- groups of people gathering to form an eye on the screen, this started his creative wheels turning. One of his earliest experimentations took the form of street portraiture, which helped him perfect his flair for replicating the human figure. One of his first exhibitions was at his University called, 'Art with a Southern Drawl'. It featured 42 of Craig's pieces, chosen from a field of more than 1,600 submissions. He has exhibited his work across the United States to great acclaim, now he is creating significant impact on the UK market. Craig's extraordinary vision is created with a combination of technical skill, creativity and wit. His 'famous faces in a crowd' show icons of stage & screen recreated in dozens, sometimes hundreds of small and intricately painted exquisite figures. These figures become the fabric with which he weaves highly complex compositions. Each piece is created in black and white with hints of red on some of the more glamorous faces. In their own way, they reflect Craig's highly recognisable take on life, where it is the small details that work together to create the big picture. A characteristic blend of disparate influences and media is visually apparent in his breath-taking work, and his unique approach demonstrates both technical sophistication and elaborate imagination.
