Colorful Dripping Wet Ink Drawings

Black silhouetted figures shield themselves from the downpour of vibrantly colored inks in these drawings by Chinese and French artist Marc Allante. As splatters spread across the paper, Allante’s figures find refuge under the cover of an umbrella. The self-taught artist works mainly with inks to create these calm and fleeting moments.

Based in Hong Kong, Allante has a passion for painting and drawing. In addition to the umbrella scenes, Deluge and Pour Deux, Allante has an extensive collection of beautiful, dripping ink illustrations. His unique and original style features vivid colors and negative space that create these impressive faces, forms, and cityscapes.

Great news for fans of this artwork, you can purchase prints through Allante’s website and enjoy his work on a daily basis!
