Allan Dordick Paintings
Allan Dordick grew up in Chicago and was inspired at an early age by an uncle, a Landscape artist. His own interest to become a figurative artist was established almost from the start of his fascination with art. Guided initially through private study with local artists, frequent visits and classes at the Art Institute of Chicago, were the foundation of his inspiration and instruction. Further study and a career began with the family move to Los Angeles, where he resides today.

Artist's Statement:
Transforming an initial photography session into a work of originally conceived fine art is my ultimate objective. Painting figures and portrait commissions has always been a challenge and affords an artist the ever ending joy of depicting the myriad of creative possibilities for figurative compositions and backgrounds. The smile on a face of the collector or portrait subject is the ultimate satisfaction.
