Much of the work of UK-based artist, Ben Allen, falls into the movement of “Pop Surrealism,” a new wave of expressive art described as an underground visual art movement.

Ben Allen’s main inspiration stems from the mixed media of modern culture and technology, a great resource for his own work. His art comes from the love of exploring colour, seeing what it can change into, and how it can transform a canvas. Working in a multitude of media and materials, influences include comic book art, surfing, skateboard culture, Japanese graphics, the Mexican “Dia de la Muerte”, typography, nature and the human condition.

Ben Allen’s work is in private collections throughout the UK, in Australia, New York, Barcelona, Japan, Ibiza and has featured in Design Week, The Observer, The Times, Elle Déco, Plus 1 and GQ magazines to name but a few.  Richard Branson, Jade Jagger and Hollywood actor Stephen Dorff have all bought his work. His designs have graced 110,000 T-shirts on Britain’s high streets. He has a permanent art display at ‘Fifteen’ Jamie Oliver’s Restaurant in Cornwall and one of his 40ft artworks dominates the Notting Hill headquarters of Virgin.

Free-spirited, UK based artist Ben Allen is most well-known for his controversial Pop paintings. Using a ‘collage’ style of unlikely juxtapositions, the dynamic paintings are complex mash-ups of popular culture that critiques the day-to-day dull and mundane, challenge the media’s view on sexuality and inspire a sense of freedom.

following on from the solo show in London in 2013, Ben has developed a series of works incorporating the dollar bill.
