Craig Alan was born in 1971 in San Bernardino California, but it was not until his family moved to New Orleans his artistic flair found inspiration. With classical training at the University of Mobile in Alabama, Alan worked vigorously to develop his unique style that blends numerous styles and genres. Craig’s earliest experimentation took the form of street portraiture, an endeavor that helped him perfect his flair for replicating the human figure and afforded the budding artist a sense of economic autonomy. His collections run the gamut from abstract expressionism to haunting, graphic realism, each one a reflection of its creator’s unique vision. Craig’s prolific career is a culmination of textbook artistic knowledge and keen aesthetic sense that is visible in his continuous exhibitions and the private collections his works belong to.
