The Bam Bamboo Series is a celebration of natures amazing gift of strength, versatility, beauty and most
importantly - sustainability. This series was inspired by a bamboo forest that the artist lived in on Maui in the
1980’s and for his concern for the un-sustainability of conventional wood resources. A recent trip to Cabo in Feb
2010 would trigger a distant memory and the result would be the first representational abstraction that Allan has
done in more that a decade. Additionally, this is the first time any of his work has been reproduced in almost 20
All the Bam Bamboo Series Giclee Prints originate from paintings that Allan executes on recycled aluminum
sheeting. The amazing effects achieved by Allan’s unique knife painting techniques are the result of decades of
practice and discovery through experimentation. These kinds of techniques are not taught in art schools - but,
rather they are wrought in the minds of artists who seek total originality.

Edition Size: Bam Bamboo Reproductions are printed on demand and are Open Edition Prints. Each Bam
Bamboo Image is created from an original painting that is destroyed after a high resolution scan is made. This is
to insure that no original one of a kind Brian Allan painting is diminished in value by the presence of
reproductions. All current and future collectors of Brian Allan's One of a Kind Originals can be confident that their
pieces are not being reproduced. Only low res digital pictures were ever taken of any of the said work and
therefore could not be reproduced anyway.
