Guy Allen is a contemporary artist and Print Maker, living and working in London. Combining a rigorous art education with a training in print making, Allen’s unique and original works are nothing short of captivating.
‘The South End of a North Bound Horse’ depicts a detailed etching of a horse viewed from behind, it’s muscular legs and swishing tail granted unexpected prominence. With a classic, antiquated feel, Allen has captured his subject with the exquisite intensity of a Dürer woodcut yet, for a modern twist, he has repurposed pop-print aesthetics, imposing blocky shapes of pink and blue pigment and gold leaf over the image. The result is high-impact: colour and composition are in perfect harmony in Allen’s breathtaking work of art.
