Life imitates Art by artist Martin Allen
The 2nd in a series of worn out Chuck Taylor Campbells Converse Trainers.
Life Imitates Art is an artistic interpretation of everyday life. This particular piece was inspired by the classic Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers that I used to wear every day.
About the artist
Martin Allen is a London based artist. Martin came to oil painting through a circuitous route, having drawn for most of his life and being largely self-taught he was eventually re-introduced to oil painting as a preferred medium to create his varied and diverse work. The methods he uses to paint are classic ones, using layered paint applications rounded off by oil glazes. These create, add depth and harmonise colours. He has shown solo numerous times at Goodwood, The Affordable Art Fair and others, been a finalist at the ‘London art Biennale 2019′, alongside various commissions including work for the BP Shipping collection, and most recently Vogue magazine.
