About Alan

Born in 1977, Alan Tod, aka Julien Alain Louis Isoré, began painting at age 10 and was interested in biology and the history of art. At the age of 24, after a master's degree in public law and a post degree in comparative intellectual property , Alan works for the National French television in entertainment as an artistic collaborator. At the age of 28, Alan opens his first painting studio in Paris and launches his first work of Total art: the international advertising campaign for love (LOVE: artforlove.fr). In 2007, he joined the School of Fine Arts in Lisbon (cieba) with his project: "Comparative Anatomy" in collaboration with the School of Medicine of Lisbon and the School of Sociology of the “Imaginaire” of the University of La Sorbonne. He produces and organizes international exhibitions, collective performances, published articles and festivals on the theme of the collective imaginary and its relationship with art. He is particularly interested in the process of building new cultures and finding new spirit of art. Since 2014, Alan Tod has been proposing the FOREST ART (FOREST IS ART) and collaborating with the biologist Fernando Souza (Bazel, Switzerland) and with the artist Marta de Menezes (Lisbon, PT) to develop bio-arte works. In 2019, Alan is a PHD Candidate in Fine Art (Arte Plasticas) at the University of Oporto in Portugal.
