About Angel Allen-Tardivel:

Angel Allen-Tardivel, born in New Orleans, Louisiana, is an African-American emerging artist living and working in Brittany, France. She is primarily an oil painter but enjoys creating with other mediums, such as clay, as an extension of her paintings and practice.

Angel uses black people in her work to represent the African diaspora. However, the stories behind each painting can resonate with many.

Angel’s art visually interprets the common man’s emotions and thoughts. Her style is characterized by soft hues and strong figurative symbolism to highlight those emotions. She uses minimal elements around the main figure to facilitate the central theme without too much divergence from the leading figure.
