Colorfully Dripping Paintings

Marc Allante Captures Abstract Ideas in the Bounds of Reality

— June 22, 2012 — Art & Design
Marc Allante creates stunning ink paintings that border on the abstract. Nevertheless, he always adds a detail that offers some context to his artwork. For instance, one of Marc Allante's paintings revolves around splattered, dripping inks that fall on almost every inch of his canvas except for the couple huddling under a shared umbrella to escape the streaks of color raining down on them.

Based in Hong Kong, Marc Allante is of Chinese and French descent. An independent, self taught artist, his work does conform to the typical, which works to his benefit. Often working with scenes that reflect imaginations caught in the boundaries of reality, he focuses on everything from faces to cityscapes. Working predominantly with inks and pens, Marc Allante manages to imbue a sense of beauty into these writing materials.
