Alan Delon is a versatile Melbourne based artist. His artwork includes collages, acrylic paintings, oil paintings, aerosol art, stencils & mixed media. He operates under the pseudonym “Alan Delon” so as to separate the art from the ego, and to allow him to experiment with a genre that doesn’t relate to his other practice.
He draws his inspiration from the Pop movement of the early sixties in which artists like Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Rauschenburg would use images taken from popular culture to create works that were a reflection of a consumer-based society. So too Delon uses a combination of elements including cinema portraits, magazine covers and newspaper clippings, collaged together to form a finished piece.
The result is a work that resembles a billboard or poster; though with the directive or intention of an ad campaign removed, these pieces of art simply retain the beauty of the iconic image stripped back to its purest form
