The Art of Alan F. Beck
Surreal Visions and a Bit of Whimsey
There is a close relationship between surrealism and fantasy. They both expand worlds beyond existing realities.

His work has been exhibited in art shows and Science Fiction/Fantasy conventions all across the country. He has won numerous awards and honors including two Chesley award nominations and a HUGO award nomination, and received a “Body of Work” Award at LA Con IV WorldCon Art Show, Anaheim, CA. plus “Best of Show” award at 2010 ReConStruction NASFiC in Raleigh, NC.
Alan’s work tends to be realistic and surrealistic in nature, often whimsical and humorous. His paintings and prints can be found in collections in the US, Canada and Europe. He has recently published a children’s book “The Adventures of Nogard and Jackpot” and is creator of the “Mouseopolitan Museum of Art”, an educational project recreating famous historical paintings, portraits and ironic images as mice.
