Artist of the moment……..Allen Stringfellow

 

Allen Stringfellow was an American painter and illustrator. Allen Stringfellow was born in the year 1923. He was raised in Chicago, Illinois by his grandmother. His parents were professional entertainers and didn’t raise of their six kids.

Stringfellow often appeared wearing a red hat when in public.

The artist was a friend of an artist already profiled here, Elizabeth Catlett. She was the African-American sculptor who moved to Mexico and only passed away in the past few years.

The artist often draws inspiration for his work from music and also from church. Stringfellow avoided political statements in his artwork.

Allen Stringfellow passed away in 2004.

In this clip we view some works by Allen Stringfellow. The section on this artist begins at 4 minutes into the clip:

Price range information: Works range from $2,000 to $10,000. The artist worked in gouache, watercolor, collage, acrylics, and ink.

I enjoy this artists sense of design and in particular with the church scenes. The artist made the space much bigger than it was due to his mastery of composition.
