Statement : 

My work is an exposition of a shared culture that explores a path through real and digital by creating a language between texture and color. By contesting the division between the realm of digital and the realm of experience, I approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way involving the viewer. My work doesn’t always reference recognizable forms, and the results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.

My focus on digital portraiture is about exploring new ways of painting through digital technology in combination with real-world art tools. I decided to use new fractal design tools to create the essence of the human condition and what that might look like in the future. As we enter the virtual world more and more, we need a representation of who we are as individuals.

Allan Linder is a prolific, award-winning artist with more than thirty years of experience producing a wide range of artwork using multiple mediums and subject matter. His painting titled “Getting There” received critical acclaim when a news story about the accompanying NFT went viral. Linder has nine exhibitions this year including the Bendheim Art Gallery in Greenwich, CT. He has launched many NFT crypto art collections on Mint Gold Dust, Known Origin, and Foundation. His 2007 art book titled "20th Century and Beyond" was re-launched this year.

Allan Linder (1966, California, United States) Began exhibiting his work at the Installations one art gallery in Los Angeles during the 80s. After receiving success with a series of paintings titled “Freedom”, an expose on the fall of the Berlin Wall, and an article in the LA Times, Linder continued to pursue his art career in New York City, when he moved there in 2000.

While living in NYC, Linder exhibited at the Artists’ Gallery in Chelsea which opened many doors to international collectors. He has enjoyed exhibiting work alongside the American abstract expressionist painter Robert Goodnough and many others. He has exhibited internationally in Brazil, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy. His work is held in private collections throughout the U.S. and internationally. His work is in permanent collections of the Elmira Museum of Art, NY, and The Rochester Contemporary Art Center, NY.

After receiving several awards for his paintings during juried group exhibitions, Linder was interviewed by JAV art and Al-Tiba9 International Art Magazines. His work will be exhibited in many group shows including work at the Swiss Art Fair in Zürich and the CICA Art Museum in Seoul, South Korea later this year.

Allan Linder fabricates paintings, drawings, digital artwork, mixed media artworks, and sculptures, using a variety of materials and substrates. His recent work Cityscapes are a collection of hand-painted artworks scanned at high resolution and digitally painted. The resulting artwork is a merger of traditional art with digital paint, printed as a giclée on canvas. Then he adds additional acrylic layers again, giving depth and color to the original image. This systematic process of enhanced prints was created by the artist over many years.
