Craig Alan was born in 1971 in San Bernardino California, but it was not until his family moved to New Orleans where he found inspiration for his Populus Series . With classical training at the University of Mobile in Alabama, Alan worked vigorously to develop his unique style that blends numerous styles and genres. Craig’s earliest experimentation took the form of street portraiture, an endeavor that helped him perfect his flair for replicating the human figure. His Paintings now are exhibited and sought-after worldwide.
Craig’s POPULUS series comprise and depict hundreds of tiny people which represent characters from all walks of life. The people are often arranged in patterns to form an iconic image; “connected” to each other on multiple levels.
As Craig continues to explore and develop his subjects, this theme of connectivity remains consistent. His subjects range from nondescript urban environments and architecture, to technology and pop-culture.
Interpreting the “message” in Craig Alan’s artwork is part of the fun of viewing and owning one of his paintings or mixed media, high gloss resin pieces. The message can be subtle or direct; sincere, or tongue-in-cheek. And of course, everyone interprets them differently depending on their own personality and perspective.
