AboutTheArtistTitle

biophotoEddieAllen

Born in 1969, Edward Allen was raised in Southern California.  Halloween was always his favorite holiday and Disneyland was his favorite destination.  In high hchool he was active in drama, choir, and the speech team, but his only artistic endeavors were drawing caricatures of his teachers and classmates.  In 1992, he earned a B.A. in English (Creative Writing) from California State University, Long Beach.  Since the early 1990s, he has performed as a singer and musician, covering classic rock and folk songs from the 1960s and 70s.

Other than taking an art class in college and a class in digital photo restoration, Mr. Allen is largely a self-taught artist. Inspired by the creepy changing portraits in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion attraction, Edward was the first artist to create spooky lenticular changing portraits based on actual antique photographs (as opposed to painted images).  Mr. Allen also drew upon his life-long interest in Halloween, vampires, and ghost stories to create his macabre characters.  For the past ten years, Mr. Allen’s changing portraits have been scaring people all over the world, both in private homes and at various amusement parks.

As “Haunted Memories” celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary in 2013, Edward Allen is extremely honored and excited to have been chosen once again to exhibit his work at Disney’s Wonderground Gallery.
