CHRISTINA ALLAN

Christina Allan (b. 1995, Toronto) received her BFA in Painting from Parsons the New School for Design in 2017. Known for her highly expressive and vibrant paintings, Allan’s work expresses profound aspects of the human experience, including the classic existential struggle. From dramatic mythical scenes to introspective psychological portraits, her work populates a world of fantastical creatures within dream-like natural landscapes.

Similar to how ancient mythological deities served as answers to the mysteries of a meaningless world and universe, Allan’s paintings present an in-between space and state – an escape from an absurd quotidian existence. Her paintings can be found in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.
