Artist
Allan P. Friedlander San Francisco, California

At first glance of Allan P Friedlander's work, one can see the free, painterly influence of artists such as Monet and van Gogh. However, he puts his own twist on the nature-themed scenes he creates, using highly choreographed color palettes and blurring the lines between impressionism and abstraction. For his most recent series, he traveled across the English countryside looking to capture the beauty and vibrance of the landscape. The resulting work flows with energy and the discovery of a grand road trip.

    Artist Statement

    Allan Friedlander paintings of landscapes, flowers, and abstracts reflect his many interests. Born and raised in Southern Georgia gave him a passion for the rural countryside and a love of the outdoors. After leaving the South, Allan had the opportunity to live in many other parts of the country and even abroad. Finally settling in Northern California, one of the most beautiful areas of the country.

    In pursuit of his passion, he studied art at Washington University and Maryland Institute College of Art obtaining his BFA degree in Fine Art. Allan spent many years doing Stock Photography. Allan traveled the world taking photographs. Then in 1999 a decision was made to go full time as a painter using photography only as a source for his landscape paintings. Giving up a job of over 20 years, to devote full time efforts to painting.

    Internally driven and emotionally charged, his work has a look of a mixture of different styles. With the ability to combine different subjects of flowers and landscapes in an Abstract manner which gives the paintings a special look. Color being a key element.

    In his paintings he has tried to create a feeling of the beauty that Allan sees all around him in nature. Sometimes done in an abstract or semi-abstract manner. The important thing is feelings used through colors to express different emotions. This is the guiding force of the work and it comes from Allan's deepest inner feelings. Hoping to share that excitement with others. With the hope that the viewer can enjoy and be moved.

    In a short period of time Allan a self-representing artist has sold hundreds of paintings in the United States and In countries all over the world including Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Holland, Mexico, Portugal, Japan, Switzerland and others.


    Allan’s work has been selected for the Art in Embassies Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and will be displayed at the U.S. Embassy in Astana, Kazakhstan.

    Hi Allan- I really like your "Lion Grove Garden" artwork- and it is a perfect size for the sliver of a wall space where I will put it- I don't need a frame but could you afix one of those saw tooth devices so that I can hang it with just a nail? Please let me know by tomorrow if possible when the sale ends- Many thanks, Frank
