Mark Allen creates in a way that leaves his Clients, Friends and Fans captivated by his ability to capture their thoughts and ideas, while commonly deviating from what is standard, normal, or expected.
Born in Los Angeles, California Mark Allen began his artist career as a young child. Gaining recognition for designing art pieces used in school and holiday programs and performances at age seven, it was easy to see the path of an artist would be his choice.
With no formal training he immediately found success in starting One Way Airbrush at age 18. This T-Shirt company did very well with Clients, German Imports and Bali Company. Soon following this venture Mark Allen started working for J.P. Advertising in Burbank California. Over the next 33 years Mark Allen worked in Motion Picture Advertising and Production creating Theatrical Posters, Home Entertainment Packaging, Corporate ID's and Multimedia Print Designs, Music CD Designs and Point Of Purchase Displays, as well and contributing with his expertise in Production Management, Graphic Design, Product Production, Presentation Specialties and Mock-Up Design and Builds. His acquired skills over the years earned him the privilege of working with such Advertising Firms as The Cimarron Group, A Sorta Fairytale Productions, Mojo Advertising, Crew Creative Advertising, Graphic Orb, Faction, Cimarron/Bacon/O'brien(CBO) and Sieniger Advertising.
Mark Allen's education evolved with his dedication and loyalty to companies such as Warner Bros., Metro Goldwyn Mayer, 20th Century Fox, Disney Studios, Touchtone Pictures, Buena Vista Pictures, Universal Studios, New Line Cinema, Paramount Studios, TriStar Pictures, TriStar Television, Columbia Studios, Lions Gate, Summit, HBO, Relativity Pictures, DreamWorks SKG, United Artist Entertainment, Orion Pictures, Focus Features, Rogue Pictures, Republic Pictures, Sony Pictures Classics, Destination Films, Castle Rock Entertainment, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Hollywood Pictures, Miramax Films, The Weinstein Company, Dimension Films, CBS Films, IFC Films, E1 Entertainment and Tyler Perry Studios.
The experience of working in Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, West Los Angeles and the Valley was very exciting and entertaining for many years, however a change of environment was inevitable. “Though the fast pace action of the studios is addicting, there is only twenty four hours in each day and I want to enjoy every one.” -Mark Allen
Recently creating his new company Creative Anomaly, which is located on the Central Coast of California, it is clear Mark Allen's passionate journey continues.
