Please expect framing time between 4-6 weeks. Roy Ahlgren (1927-2011) Algren was born in 1927 in Erie, PA. He is a self-taught painter. In 1964 he began to work in the op and hard edge technique. He received more than 60 prizes, among them purchase awards from the Seattle Art Museum, Minot State College, Texas Tech University Museum and the Mississippi Art Association. He exhibited in many national print shows. (from bio provided by the Associated American Artists, NY.) Roy Ahlgren entered the art world somewhat in reverse. While most artists start by recording realistic subjects and moving to abstract work later in their careers, Ahlgren began creating geometric abstract designs and continued to do so for 23 years. His media was both serigraphy and traditionally brushed pigment onto canvas. His compositions were unique with many being mathematically constructed with considerable precision.
