Allan Halley was born in Valparaiso, Chile. He felt amused by art since he was a child, growing up in a city full of inspiration and aesthetics, bringing artist all over the world for decades - Valpo was his source of inspiration and creativity. But the squads of muralists that fought against the military dictatorship in Chile (1973 -1989) were the greatest influence in going out to paint on the streets, understanding painting a wall as another trench of resistance.
Artist Allan Halley defines his art as the search for his own language, the concern to express complex ideas and thoughts, the desire to understand and accept, the desire to control the line, the subtlety of the gift, the commitment to detail, the desire for transformation, the perseverance of the profession, the pleasure of observing, the aim to create, the generation of a question, the intimacy of a blank page, the taste for the word without forms.
A couple of years ago he decided to begin to intervene in the city, understanding it as a public and democratic space, where the temporality of a work is decided by the nature of its importance and validity.
