Malibu Chronicles: Malibu Artist Allois Paints Visionary Atavistic Intrigue and Mystique (Article and Photos by Barbara Burke)

Full story in Malibu Chronicles

Hand Retouched Canvas Prints

Limited Edition Canvases combine old world craftsmanship with the finest materials and latest production technologies to produce extraordinary canvas artwork. Our reproduction process captures not only the color and mood of Allois original painting, but the actual brushwork as well. Every piece is hand-retouched by Allois, giving the painting a look almost identical to the artist’s on-easel original. Vibrant colors, rich textures and color tones accurate to Allois original brushstroke are the hallmarks of your finished piece.

“S” Collectors Numbered Edition of 27

“The thickness of oil on canvas print is similar to the original brushstrokes, oil pigments cover whole canvas surface. Old-fashioned techniques and special medias are being used in this process. Final result looks like oil painting, not a print, and people perceive it as the original” Allois 

A limited edition print is so named because its run — the number of these prints that are created and sold — is limited to a specific number, say, 200. Each run is determined by size and any other qualifying factors; for instance, you can have a limited edition run of an image in a 12 x 15 size on paper, another run of 16 x 20 on paper, a third run of 12 x 15 on canvas, and so on. If you purchase the 5th print sold in the 12 x 15 on paper run, then somewhere on the print will be written (generally in pencil, since this is difficult to forge) 5/200, which indicates that your print is the 5th piece out of a total of 200 to be created in this particular run.

The print may or may not be signed by the artist (if the artist is alive, it really should be), and if so, will be of increased value. It also may or may not include a Certificate of Authenticity, a piece of paper or form that lists out the run size, the number of your print in the run, and information on inks and paper, and the date that the print was created.

The Theater of Earth

 

Oil on gesso panel, 40 x 30 in, framed

The Theater of Earth. This is my latest painting from The Floating Kingdom series. Painting was inspired by a fleeting encounter with a wonderful couple. Two creatures of power and fine attributes are enjoying their night out at the theater. They are watching a new channel, a non-stop reality show broadcasted from the planet Earth. Our couple is mildly interested in this new program, but you can tell that they are not really concerned about its outcome or happy endings for the characters (called Humans). They are happy being next to each other and their love fills the painting with an aura of happiness. (Allois and Jörge)

The story  behind the painting:

Aurora & Kent. My name is Aurora, it is my duty is to meet the new day and to greet the Sun. I bring the colors of the Dawn into your dreams so that you start your day with a smile. I chase away your dark thoughts and your nightmares, I am the one who keeps you sane.

Monclaire Sheri & Antoine, 2018

 

Monclaire Sheri and Antoine.  My name is Monclaire Cheri and I like to play. When I was a little girl I had a lot of friends to play with, but as we were getting older my friends started to lose interest in games. For a while I was sad because I had to play alone, but then it was even more fun because I discovered how to play with people. I was not too cruel to them, I swear! And then I found a friend. Antoine is the beast playmate I could ever dream of. Sometimes I wonder, maybe I dreamed him into existence? Together with Antoine we invented a million new games. We teach our children the Art of Playfulness: I teach them how to get the most fun out of each game, Antoine teaches them how to stay safe when playing with dangerous or boring creatures. You are invited into our Game, and if you refuse we are going to play anyway, but we are going to play with you! (Allois and Jörge)
