"Canuto Kallan studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts, Greece. In his works the joy of creation comes to life through his spontaneity and imagination and the free and improvisational way in which he handles the medium. His experimentation with color and the way he feverishly applies it result in an intensity which extends far beyond the paintings' surface. The simplicity of his figures lends them liveliness and a rhythm which excites the viewers' eyes into a constant state of alertness and keeps their interest intact."
Canuto Kallan was born in Copenhagen, Denmark.
He graduated from the Athens School of Fine Arts, Greece as a painter and print maker, holds a Master of Science in Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark and has been awarded the Silver Medal for Woodworking by the Queen of Denmark as a cabinetmaker.
His work has been presented so far in five solo exhibitions in Greece and Denmark as well as in numerous group shows throughout Europe, Canada, Israel, South Africa and Turkey.
Since 1993 he lives and works in Athens, Greece.
