Allan Banford

Allan Banford artworks respond directly to the surrounding environment of everyday experiences, unnoticed instances that come alive by his “Laceration” technique, de-constructing the subject to the extent that the meaning is shapeshifted, creating an abstract interpretation that challenge perception and perspective.

His art follows the concept of constant creative evolution, identifying the boundaries between consciousness and reality his creations capture movements, emotions, portraits and, figures revealing an inseparable relationship between dimension and space, this conceptual approach produces a unique multi-layered texturized artworks.

The abstract conceptualization and digital art of Allan Banford’s art have been portrayed as “一期一会 / Ichi-go Ichi-e” / “for this time only, and once in a lifetime” treasuring the unrepeatable nature of the Minkowski spacetime moment theory.
