Guy Allen Biography
Guy discovered his passion for print making during his time in Paris studying at the École Nationale Supérieure Des Beaux-Arts in 2010, when he became particularly fascinated with the traditional etching process. Following his graduation from Central Saint Martin’s School of Art in 2010, Guy moved back to Norfolk for 18 months, from where he still finds his inspiration. In 2012 Guy trained as an assistant print maker under Mary Dalton and Stanley Jones at Curwen Studios, Cambridge; where he had to learn at a fast clip how to master other types of print making. In 2013 and 2014 Guy had one of his etchings selected to be exhibited in the prestigious Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London. Currently, Guy is working as a full time artist in London, where he spends the majority of his time in his studio in Peckham or when he is printing at Artichoke Printmaking Studios in London. After a successful first solo exhibition in London, Guy had an inspiring response from his horse studies, this year Guy is focusing on the horse as a subject matter.
