Artist’s Progression from 2 Years Old to 25

Seeing how popular his recent lion painting was, Hong Kong born artist Marc Allante decided to show the 25 years it took to get there. Starting with the portraits of his grandma (“oma”) and grandpa (“opa”), Mark picked out a painting from each year, demonstrating every step of the way that led him to his current style – an elegant fusion of Western and Eastern art traditions, inspired by his French and Chinese ancestry. Interestingly, Mark never went to any art school, but his portfolio already exceeds 20 years of work!
