Strength, as we all know, comes from within us, with the physical aspect often outweighed by the psychological element we all harbour at any one time. It’s not uncommon for an individual to be referred to as someone else’s ‘rock’ or ‘tower’, a term which implies that they are a robust, reliable and trusted support network to someone. Much in the same way, at least from another, admittedly physical perspective, a bridge-like construct would be. And it’s these two core components which one of the planet’s most hyped (and justifiably so) contemporary fine artists has seized upon and fused together to lay the compositional foundations for his brand new pictorial reveal.
This Spring 2016 sees the launch of the exciting, emerging visual talent that is, Craig Alan crash back onto the modern portraiture art scene, and further cement his claim to be amongst its most prolific and inspired movers and shakers. ‘Tower of Strength’ does just that with serious graphic aplomb, fuelled by vivid illustrative fervour, as its individual pieces link together like a magic, virtual jigsaw before our very eyes to conjure up one of London’s most famous sights, namely Tower Bridge. In this astonishingly powerful human form and functionality, Alan has sought to deliver this bespoke hand-signed and embellished boxed canvas study, which in the accepted context of a limited edition feature is restricted to just 95 iterations; all of which are predicted to find favour with new owners in no time at all.
