Allan Banford is a contemporary fine artist specialising in Acrylic Figurative paintings focussing on abstract through observing, experiencing, interpreting, storing and ultimately reflecting his vision back at the observer. The result he strives for is a unique and original visual experience, capturing the sense of recollection from a unique point of view. His influences are incredibly varied, from classical masters such as Rembrandt and William Turner, to contemporary icons such as Francis Bacon and Mark Rothko. However, he alludes to Vincent Van Gogh works from the Yellow House as his greatest influence.
He uses this plethora of stimuli to create a contemporary style called LACERATION for which he has become known in niche artist networks, He has also worked as music producer, releasing several records including an EP called ‘Essential Element’ for SLS Records featured by American techno godfather Jeff Mill’s DVD The Exhibitionist. This was followed by a series of number one hits including the ‘Best of British’ released on Carl Cox’s label Intec Records.
