About Michael Allen

Michael Allen Michael Allen was born in Greenville, SC and attended Greenville area schools. A B.S. degree in Chemistry was received from Talladega College in 1974 eventhough the initial purpose for going to college was to major in art. Over the past 35 years Michael has worked as a Reasearch Chemist in the Industrial Chemical field. Art has been the primary tool to unwind from the daily pressures of industrial research. It is suspected that this unwinding may be the inspriation for the calming blue theme which dominates the majority of his work.

Many hours have been spent at the drawing board developing skills that would prove to be invaluable a his unique style of art. Art classes in high school and college were instrumental in fine tuning painting techniques. However, it is a strong desire to paint real, undistorted life that has led to a bold style which is characterized by brilliant and true colors. This style which often takes on a blue theme has become recognizable throughout the Southeast.

Working primarily with oil paints, subjects range from wildlife; to land and seascapes; and ethnic (African-American) art. Works by Michael Allen have been exhibited at Talladege College, Tri-County Technical College, the Greenville, Anderson. Spartanburg and Pickens County Art Museums of South Carolina. One man shows have been held at Falls Cottage Art Gallery, The Greenville Cultural Exchange Center, The Arts of Passage Art Gallery and many other upstate South Carolina Gallerys.
