Born in 1987, Guy Allen graduated from Central Saint Martins School of Art with a BA Honours degree in Fine Art in June 2011 and immediately embarked on a career as a full time artist.
During his degree Guy studied for a term in Paris, where he discovered a passion for printmaking. He has rarely left the printing studio since and now focuses on his limited edition etchings. Working both to commission for clients and to add to his extensive portfolio Guy’s distinctive style brings a lively, contemporary spirit to this traditional medium.
Recently Guy has been experimenting further with the printing process and his latest series combines hs etching with lithography and aquatint, adding colour and greater texture to the work.
In January 2012 Guy was taken on by the highly respected Curwen Studios where he works as a printing assistant and now spends his time between Cambridge and his studio in Norfolk.
Within the last year Guy has already had a series of successful exhibitions including the Affordable Art Fair and annual Under a Grand exhibition. GrandyArt is delighted to be working with such a talented young artist.
