Chris Allen is a young contemporary artist whose art focuses on consumerism and extinction. Over consumption could widely be viewed as the reason there are so many environmental concerns. This is why it is a large aspect of his work.
He is passionate about the environment and what people are or are not doing in order to preserve it. His work makes us as viewers consider the effects we as people have on the environment as well as the people around us. It further pushes us to consider what we can do to help slow and eventually stop the rate at which we are destroying our planet.
