“At the age of 38 I decided to paint like it was 1989” : Itsnicethat Feature on Alan Fears’ Paintings

Great feature on Alan and his paintings on itsnicethat.

 “At the age of  38 I decided to paint like it was 1989,” says multidisciplinary artist Alan Fears. We’ve written about Alan previously for his expression filled paper mache heads, but this time the artist has applied his paintbrush to canvas with brilliant results..

“As an only child growing up in the 1980s, I spent a lot of time drawing caricatures of pop stars, movie stars, fictional people, and imaginary worlds” says Alan.

The underlying message in each of the artist’s work is positivity. “Thematically, I try to communicate the idea that we are all equally ridiculous and that none of us should take ourselves, or art for that matter, seriously. Serious people are the ones who ruin the experience of life, limit enjoyment and bum everyone out. The pointlessness in life is the point to life, that’s how it appears to me.” .
