Alain Magallon Born – Paris 1962 – Celebrating The Queens Jubilee
My paintings are mainly influenced by pop art and mystical themes. The figurative subjects are painted in oil and acrylic and are inspired by history past and present whose anachronistic and metaphorical symbols contrast with the graphic backgrounds that are painted in acrylic. They are often represented in static and devoted or illuminated poses.
The goal is to produce a duality or imbalance between the neoclassical frozen or theatrical pose of the models and the association of the matter and the colours; mysticism is replaced by narcissistic tendencies
Sometimes the subject’s fascination with their own image tends to duplicate or multiply themselves like the proverbial Russian dolls.
Magallon has a devoted following with major collectors worldwide.
