Phillip Allen

 

Biography and information

Phillip Allen was born in London in 1967 and currently lives and works in the capital. He was educated at Kingston University, London and Royal College of Art, London, where he obtained an MA in Fine Art in 1992.

Allen is known for his textured paintings and pen drawings, both of which use colour and shape to exploit his materials to their inherent potential. His sketches and felt-tip drawings display a fascination with geometry and abstract form, and possess something of the school boy’s doodles, despite being controlled and intricately arranged.

Allen has exhibited broadly, including the following group exhibitions: The British Art Show 6, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary, Art Gateshead;, touring to venues in Manchester, Nottingham, Bristol, 2005; Archipeinture: painters build architecture, Le Plateau/Frac Île-de France, Paris; Camden Arts Centre, London, 2006 and Layer Cake, Fabio Tiboni Arte Contemporanea, Bologna, Italy, 2007. Recent solo exhibitions include Phillip Allen: Recent Paintings, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, LongIsland City, New York, 2003; One Man Show, Xavier Hufkens, ART Brussels, 2005; Milton Keynes Gallery, Milton Keynes, 2006 and The Approach, London, 2008-9.

The artist is represented by The Approach, London.
