about the artist
born: 1955, Berkeley, California

Allan Lofberg is a quiet artist with a signature style that encompasses both sophisticated abstraction and whimsical representation. With over a decade of art making under his belt, Allan lets his mood dictate his studio practice. His abstractions are introspective and vary from muted to loud palettes, while his representational work reveals an affinity for animals from the cuddly to the creepy-crawly.
