Allan D'Arcangelo Biography

Buffalo,New York, 1930 - 1998

Allan D'Arcangelo was born in Buffalo, New York.

After earning a degree in history from the University of Buffalo and he moved to Mexico City where he studied art and, in 1958, held his first one-man show.

His style, loosely termed HARD EDGE or CONSTRUCTIVIST ART, is based on spatial relationships. A keen sense of perception, complemented by expert use of color tones and shadows, points up these relationships in forceful compositions.

It has been said that D'Arcangelo "has the ability to defy, yet document, spatial relationships at the same time." The recipient of fifteen awards and commissions, D 'Arcangelo has had frequent one-man shows, many of which traveled to prominent museums throughout America.
