Thomas Allen Bio
About The Artist
Photographer Thomas Allen's quirky artworks appropriate cut-outs from vintage pulp art advertisements. Allen often stages multiple situations to create complementary contexts. He carefully titles each photograph to create cheeky double entendres. Allen's technique of blurring certain figures in order to draw focus to others instructs and entertains the viewer both visually and mentally.
Thomas Allen was born in Michigan and lives and works there today. He is represented in New York and Washington and is held in collections and exhibitions nationally.
