"Time to Go Home" by Douglas Allen
Marker, color pencil, and graphite on paper | 12" x 18"
Douglas Allen (b. 1954) has worked as a studio artist at the progressive art studios of Tierra del Sol since 2009. Allen works in a variety of media to build intimate cityscapes using a psychedelic pallet. The prominent feature of these compositions are detailed diesel trucks, which he creates from memory. “I want to be a truck driver someday, but I know that’s impossible so I draw them instead,'' says Allen. When he’s not making art he enjoys spending time with his dogs.
Allen has shown his work professionally in the Los Angeles area since 2009. His professional experience includes curating Microcosmic: Los Angeles at the Center of the Universe, Los Angeles City Hall Bridge Gallery, Los Angeles, California, in 2013.
