Abstract Metal Wall Art by Jon Allen

About Jon Allen

The visionary art of abstract metal artist Jon Allen grows out of the artist’s love for organic expression, the meditative aspects of nature and the textural potential of his materials. A marriage of industrial technique and visual grace, Allen’s abstract metal art pieces are able to portray light-hearted playfulness or hypnotic intensity with equal ease, and the prismatic quality of their reflective surfaces gives them a unique sense of movement and liveliness.

Jon Allen was trained at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, an institution that has been providing training in design, media, fashion and culinary arts for nearly a half century, and he refined his style of abstraction by spending time in Europe, studying the centuries-old traditions of Western art and focusing his attention on the intersection of architecture and art at the peak of Modernism in the 20th century. He counts among his influences both abstract painters such as Paul Klee and influential architects like Frank Lloyd Wright.

True to the diverse range of art that has inspired it, Allen’s own abstract metal work explores the fusion of structure and color, as he augments the rigidity of the metal in which he works with the fluid chromatic effects of paint. The result is art that effectively combines the analytical abstraction of the 20th century with the organic sense of the 21st century.

Allen’s work has proven popular with collectors who appreciate the metal art pieces’ clean, vibrant compositions, and his sculptures capture the attention of buyers looking for art that fits well into modern architectural settings. His work is held in collections in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, and it is displayed in public spaces, hotels, corporate facilities and private collections. His work has been featured in more than 200 galleries worldwide.

Jon Allen has also placed work in many juried shows and received many awards, including Best of Show prizes.  Allen remains actively connected to the arts community, maintaining membership in numerous art associations and guilds.

“Art exists as an intangible theory when hands are idle; only an engaged hand can visually exchange the theory to others.” – Jon Allen
