Born in Denmark, Allan Bestle lives and works in Berlin since 2011. As an archaeologist of the archetype, his pictorial universe is filled with archetypes, signs and symbols. These ‘characters’ appear during his shamanistic painting rituals, sign by sign, layer by layer. They fill the canvas with visually vivid experiences that are reminiscent of cave drawings, Viking and Indian rock carvings or graffiti and become rhythmic gateways to our original and inner true selves. Allan’s work has been featured in international magazines and galleries, alongside other artists of repute.
