Born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Allan Chow’s creative journey began when he moved to the States as a teenager. Inspired by his Malaysian and American culture, Allan’s natural instincts as a painter is manifested through his exuberant colors, bold paint strokes and irresistable textures that set him apart from his peers and made his paintings one of the most preferred and collected in the country today.
Allan paints with a palette knife, applying thick impasto in brilliant colors found only in dreams. His emotions and passions pour through his spontaneous yet controlled brushstrokes, creating a three-dimensional experience for his audiences. During his exhibitions, viewers find it difficult to resist the temptation to touch his paintings. Allan has established a national following with his sophisticated style and obvious passion for painting.
