Dave demystifies art

“Art is someone making sense of something.”

Using drawing, sound, video, performance and installation, Dave looks at how music is disseminated and mythologized. Born in 1963 in Glasgow, Scotland, Dave Allen met his girlfriend in Berlin and moved out there. He now lives and works in Stockholm, where he thinks himself lucky, spending most of his time in his studio. For Dave, art isn’t a mystery. It’s just another way of telling your story.
