Allen Bannister is an artist living in Indianapolis, IN. He has been creating abstract paintings and prints for the past 10 years since he studied Painting at Ball State University. He is currently studying Plein-Air painting and drawing, as well as studio landscape painting and drawing. Although his background is in abstract painting, in recent years he has shifted his focus to representation, and nature, learning about light and color through painting in workshops and with other artists.
His most recent exhibition at Hotel Broad Ripple entitled “Forests and Waterways”, included 30 new paintings and drawings of nature in Indiana, South Carolina, and Washington, many of which were created on-site.
