Entry Description

Glen Allison’s fascination lies in crafting tribal-themed and texturally rich imagery that portrays earthy color tones washed by three-dimensional light in an expression that blends artistic elements from a diverse cross section of ethnic societies into his refined, stylized depictions. Using authentic tribal accessories combined with indigenous body painting skills, his images explore mood and human emotion integrated with the decorative flair typically expressed with tribal body art techniques found in the farthermost regions of the world.
