When Donald Trump left the Whitehouse many artists were denied an opportunity to create satirical artworks and then Boris Johnson “stepped into the breach” and filled a huge void…’Party what Party?’…it was just a ‘work related gathering’.
If you like ‘Peppa’s Party’ one of my reflections of Political Life in 10 Downing Street during Covid Lockdown you may also like ‘Dory Party’, and ‘Special Friends‘.
Artist Martin Allen
is a London based. Martin came to oil painting through a circuitous route, having drawn for most of his life and being largely self-taught he was eventually re-introduced to oil painting as a preferred medium to create his varied and diverse work. The methods he uses to paint are classic ones, using layered paint applications rounded off by oil glazes. These create, add depth and harmonise colours. He has shown solo numerous times at Goodwood, The Affordable Art Fair and others, been a finalist at the ‘London art Biennale 2019’, alongside various commissions including work for the BP Shipping collection, and recently Vogue magazine.
Martin will be showing this and various other artworks with La Belle Epoch at The Affordable Art Fair Hampstead 2022.
