Allan Friedlander paintings of landscapes, flowers, and abstracts reflect his many interests. Born and raised in Southern Georgia gave him a passion for the rural countryside and a love of the outdoors. After leaving the South he had the opportunity to live in many other parts of the country and even aboard. Finally settling in Northern California one of the most beautiful areas of the country.
In pursuit of his passion, he studied art at Washington University and Maryland Institute College of Art obtained his BFA degree in Fine Art. Allan spent many years doing Stock Photography. He traveled the world taking photographs. Then in 1999 he decided to go full time as a painter using photography only as a source for his landscape paintings. He gave up his job of over 20 years to devote his full time efforts to painting.
Internally driven and emotionally charged Allan's work has a look of a mixture of different styles. He is able to combine his different subjects of flowers and landscapes in an Abstract manner which gives his paintings a special look. Color being a key element.
