Come check out award-winning artist Chester Allen's alchemic riffs.
When I was a kid my dad and Sun Ra stood in back of me saying, "Play it like this" to which I would reply, "I don't see THIS on the page." To which they would reply, " Son, that's cuz ya' gotta go "Off the page!"
30 Years later that's what I do called UNIVERSAL GROOVE

About

The Philosopher w/ball peen hammer

As far back as I can remember I have had a care and concern for others and a unique outlook on life, which started with my Dad. To my many queries my dad would respond, "It's all about life and livin' it." He would continue, that all of what happens in life is for the purpose of us to observe and to act in ways that are worthwhile, beneficial, and necessary.
These influences, stirred in with my spirituality and love of music lead to the development of the three series of work, Life & Livin' it, Pillars of Life, LOVE, SERVICE, UNITY, SOURCE, and Oasis of Energy's Universal Groove.
Life and Livin it thus became by first inspiration for recent art followed by The Pillars of Life Series: Love, Service, Unity, and The Source which began in 2011.
Three events tie in to this series, a dream, a custom order, and the development of a group.
The Dream
As part of my process as an artist, I often fast, and meditate. In that REM state, I saw us all on a bridge. The bridge started to go up with us still on it! I remember thinking if I should hold on to save myself or hold on to save others. All the while, I had the sense of the Divine's presence. The Source was aware and spoke in to me that it's o.k. and this is supposed to happen. The dream ends with a sphinx-like question. Who heals the healers?

The Custom order
I was asked to make a ring for a customer with names of her four children. These names and the children themselves represented a foundation. It got me thinking. What are the Foundations or Pillars in life?

The Development of a Group
I often think and act as a lone wolf. Pulling in and calling out the troops, mainly God and me. Thru my national tours with my work, I have had the opportunity to meet like minded individuals. The idea was born that these, "Citizens of the world" could move collectively for common purposes.
The Pillars of Life series: LOVE, SERVICE, UNITY, SOURCE 
This series is simple, and interconnected. 
LOVE is the highest frequency on the planet. When we move out of Love, everything is in Divine order!
SERVICE is a concrete manifestation of Love. We can say, "I love you" but what do we actually Do. I believe that SERVICE is how we manifest God on this earth plain.
UNITY is the understanding scientifically and spiritually that we are all one. When we act collectively in LOVE and SERVICE,  we are honoring THE SOURCE.
The SOURCE is in ALL. In acknowledgment and honoring of SOURCE thru acts of LOVE and SERVICE, we get to see that LOVE and SERVICE return, and multiply in amazing ways.
Oasis of Energy's Universal Groove was the next series. It is a continuation of the two previous series. It is an outgrowth and awareness that music both shows our individuality, and common threads.
In this series, I will mix symbolisms across cultural divides with the vibration of musical symbolism to bring harmony. 
The newest art Series is from a question that came to me when my dad was ailing and passed;What Time is it in your Soul's Expression. Answer It's half past the ancestors... now it's on you!
In Joy!
