About the artist: Alan Claude greatly admires the American realist painter Edward Hopper because of his brilliant use of light and shadow, along with stark empty spaces. Other influences were early 20th century poster artists and pop artist Robert Indiana. In August 2004, Alan and his wife Erin visited with him at his Vinyl Haven island home. Robert Indiana gave them a private tour of his works and discussed art and life. The visit inspired Alan Claude to search further to find his own “voice” or style in art. Alan works in various mediums including pen & ink, photography, and digital illustration.
