Advent Calendar Day 19: Ben Allen
First introduced as part of our summer exhibition, Carnival of Colour, Ben Allen brought a whole new level of vibrancy to the show with his Psychedelic Skulls. These artworks combine contrasting themes, juxtaposing imagery reminiscent of a church’s stained glass windows with skulls representing rebellion and popular culture.
Ben Allen has exhibited in a number of group shows in London and around the world, and boasts high profile collectors, from Jade Jagger to Richard Branson, along with big brand clients such as Levis, Converse and Nokia. Drawing inspiration from surfing and skateboard culture, he has carved a successful career in contemporary art – both in commercial projects and gallery exhibitions to date.
