Meet Your Instructor:
Timothy Joseph Allen

Fondatore e Presidente dell’Associazione di Promozione Sociale A.P.S. PADASOR, Timothy Joseph Allen è un pittore professionista americano che vive e lavora a Roma da più di 20 anni. Tim ha iniziato la sua carriera artistica nel 1992, conseguendo un BA (Bachelor of Arts) in Studio Art presso la DePauw University e un MFA (Masters in Fine Arts) nel 1998 presso la Indiana University di Bloomington. Dal 2006 insegna anche presso The American University of Rome.

La sua principale tecnica pittorica è la pittura ad olio, in particolare olio su tela. Il suo stile e i soggetti scelti sono soprattutto ispirati al Rinascimento e al Barocco.

Di particolare importanza nel suo processo è la pittura dal vero: “Adoro dipingere soprattutto quando la presenza del soggetto e il passaggio del tempo si combinano per aggiungere urgenza alle mie analisi, intuizioni e performance.”

Negli anni recenti i suoi lavori sono stati pre-selezionati o selezionati in diverse competizioni internazionali tra cui Royal Society of Portrait Painters, Figurativas a Barcellona, World Wide Kitsch e BP National Gallery Portrait Competition a Londra.
