"I am an artist, I paint with oils, and weld metal to make sculptures."

 

 

 

 

 

"Welcome To My World" 

 

Joseph Allen’s art is described by many as bold, vivacious, and evolving. His work reflects not only his eccentric nature as an individual, but also the passion, brilliance and devotion of a genuine artist. Working in the medium of oil, Joseph’s abstract style celebrates color, texture, and striking contrast, and has evolved magnificently throughout his life as an artist.
Born in 1977 in Buffalo, NY, Joseph began painting at a young age. Besides extensive self teaching, Joseph attended Buffalo State College for his B.A. in Fine Arts and has had several exhibitions in the Western New York area. Joseph’s early works dealt with other mediums, such as mixed media, but because of his firm belief for growth, his career will never be static. His loose and fluid style speaks for his fearlessness of change. His body of work includes daringly grand pieces stretching over 8ft tall and spanning 182 inches wide. He also has an extensive collection of smaller works.
Joseph’s body of work reaches beyond the canvas and emerges into a three dimensional world. For fifteen years, he has been employed at Alry Tool and Die Co. The time he spends in the plant stimulates him to bring to life an array of extraordinary metal sculpture. He welds and manipulates the available raw material and also creates his own tools for art, such as metal palate knives. A remarkable collection of work is permanently visible in his exclusive sculpture park located in Tonawanda, NY.
Joseph Allen currently resides in Buffalo, where he is close with family. He continues to produce the type of art which he feels there isn’t enough of in the world.
