Allan Bech’s works are often described as surreal and metaphoric. He works within the fields of the irrational and subconscious which is most apparent when pencil is applied to paper, drawing what comes to my mind. Finding inspiration in everyday life, Bech meanders his environment collecting thoughts on scraps of paper. His beautifully detailed works are a catalogue of the mundane events of the everyday. Bech creates his own perception in life, a unique vision of the world.
Allan Bech (born 1983) had his first exhibition at Gallery V58, back in 2010. The architect, C.F. Møller offered him a solo-exhibition at their headquarters. He studied at Aarhus School of Architecture, Jutland Art Academy before returning to Aarhus School of Architecture. Allan Bech was associated to V58 from November 2010 to October 2013, before moving to Copenhagen, where he now resides and works. He recently returned to Aarhus as he was invited to do a wall piece near the city’s cultural centre, Godsbanen. In 2014 he will exhibit in Denmark, Norway and at PAPER in the UK.
