Calvin Allison

“My work is a blend of classicism and abstraction. Sculpted screen allows me to manipulate light and line with shadow to create illusions.”

After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Evergreen State College, Calvin studied in London under the eminent British Sculptor, David Begbie. Begbie introduced him to sculpting in screen and steel, which continues to inspire his ongoing exploration of form, light and line. Calvin has been successfully sculpting using metal screen since 1992.

Calvin’s artwork is all one of a kind, made entirely by hand. Then powder coating gives the sculpture rigidity and permanent tensile integrity. The medium of metal screen is unforgiving, requiring extreme patience, time, dexterity and hand-eye coordination to create each individually signed piece.
