Allan Madsen is an internationally well known artist who has had exhibitions in many countries world wide. Some worth mentioning are USA, Canada, Spain, Ireland and Sweden.
Allan Madsen was born in 1952 in Randers, Denmark and at the age of 5 he and his family moved to Canada.
Between the years 1971 and 1981 he studied and taught music in London - with harpmusic from the renaissance as his speciality. During this period Allan also started studying the art of drawing. In 1981 he moved to Paris, where he continually improved his art at the same time as he did work in Italy and Spain.
In 1988 Allan Madsen moved to Sweden but is currently living in Spain with his wife and three children in the spanish city of Murcia.
Allan Madsen uses the same technique in his artistry as the old 17th century masters where he first covers the canvas with a base color and then starts building the strucure and motif. It's the feeling and atmosphere that is important in his paintings and the motif is used to bring the viewer in to the picture.
Allan's paintings are often still life: fruits, shimmering glass and verdigris covered copper dish surrounded by a dreamlike dim. In Allan's art you often find influences from both barock and renaissance masters like Boticelli, Giotto, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci and musical influences from Monteverdi.
