Tony Allen’s artwork is jovial and full of character, much like Tony himself. His colourful cartoons take a humorous look at the world and his written observations suggest alternative interpretations to familiar experiences.
In 2022, Tony was awarded a Disability Arts Online Covid Commission to create a new digital artwork responding to the theme of connectivity. He collaborated with an animator to create a film showcasing his striking words of wisdom.
He enjoys opportunities to take his work out to meet the public and discuss ideas.
Tony Allen is a resident artist at ActionSpace’s Cockpit Arts studio.
