ABOUT

Alan Streets was born in England in 1969.

He became interested in graffiti in the 80’s and this is a major influence in his paintings. He is also influenced by Bruegel, Hieronymus Bosch and Salvador Dali.

In 1989 he decided to try and make it as an artist and moved to New York.

When he was 23 he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and he has been in mental hospital three times.

In 2007 a documentary about him and his paintings was released called
“My name is Alan and I paint pictures”.

In 2010 he returned to London. He taught himself to woodcarve and has made a collection of woodcarvings which are shown on this website.

He spends most of his time painting, preferring to paint imaginary paintings. These are scenes that he imagines but sometimes he uses references.

Most of his painting techniques are self taught and because of this he could be considered an outsider artist.

All his latest work is updated onto this website and he hopes viewers enjoy his art!
