Few illustratively simplistic and graphically fundamental outlines afford the viewer the instant gratification of knowing precisely who or what they’re gazing excitedly upon, however seldom do we witness the sublime creative works of a modern genius up close and personal. And it’s the ‘up close’ and ‘personal’ elements which strike a chord with the new critically acclaimed contemporary figurative artist on the block, Craig Alan most.
The much-talked about American exponent of his genre has followed up his recently well-received original outings with this brand new mini-series release for Spring 2015; all of which are available to pre-order via our usual channels of communication here and now. Entitled ‘The Blonde’ this framed giclee on box canvas does little to hide the fact that it’s Marilyn Monroe we’re poring over, yet the Devil is unreservedly in the pictorial detail of this sublime manifestation. Under closer scrutiny you discover that all the seeming pixelations are in fact ting figures based on friends and family of Alan, along with other models, which also ticks the ‘personal’ box we touched on above. Limited to a mere 50, individually-signed studies, this unique 30” x 30” piece is forecast to find favour in record-breaking time when it comes into the wider public domain, hence why we urge interested parties to act now.
