Michael Alan

Michael Alan (born July 13, 1977, New York, NY) is a New York City-based artist. He works in various media, including drawings, paintings, prints, sculptures, video and performances.

In 2010, Robert Shuster of The Village Voice wrote, in reviewing Alan's solo show Harmonious Opposites, “Alan’s thread-like lines are manically impulsive; they barely go an inch without detouring. Short, jagged strokes, tiny loops, and Fast arcs make jittery, skeletal outlines of distorted human forms. Hasty daubs of blues and pinks wrap the frames bearing in mind translucent skin though also conveying the blur of movement. Alan loves motion; in Move in Distance, a dancer’s five legs, kicking in the works in successive positions, pay homage to those futurist studies in dynamism. Even the reclining male figure of Prostitution looks restless—the angular, attenuated limbs and their vibrant surfaces bring to mind one of Egon Schiele’s more worried self-portraits.”
