Artist Allen Wittert's expressionist paintings present the abstract, the figurative and everything in between. Each piece is marked by a vibrant use of color - frequent choices include turquoise, violet, and yellow - along with strong, gestural brushwork. Allen has been a passionate artist since he was a child growing up in his native South Africa. His style has evolved as he's moved around the world as an adult, including Connecticut, California, Texas and now England. According to Allen, he gravitates toward three motifs: women's faces, architectural fantasies, and abstraction. "I work generally with one of those three in mind, sometimes closely from a specific sketch," says Allen. "Add layers, scrape it off, leave marks, repeat."

"Greco Roman in California" looks great in my living room! The colors really bring life to a large space. The shipping was professional and delivered in a timely manner.- techshafted
