This is a sun-filled painting of a subject that will always be dear to my heart: figures on the beach. Being on the beach on a sunny day with colorful umbrellas and people makes me happy--simple as that. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It was made with acrylic paint and collage, and it comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Allen

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Allen Wittert began illustrating at an early age. While still in high school, he worked as a freelance storyboard artist and cartoonist for Ogilvy Mather in Johannesburg and, subsequently, other top agencies during school breaks. He creates work with surprising patterns of color that come together in dynamic combinations and compositions. Allen finds inspiration in a diverse array of local sights, still life displays, and women. He says, "I am attracted to the rough and ready in content, application, and the picture surface."
