With 14 years experience working in Formula One racing, it’s easy to see where artist Alastair Gibson gets his inspiration. Drawing similarities between modern Grand Prix cars and game fish, Alastair undertook a series of sculptures using F1 parts and technology to show these unique fish in a different form.
His works have been exhibited in the 2003 Lucky Strike Tribe Art Exhibitions, which started at the Boiler House, Brick Lane, London and then moved to Tokyo, Milan, Frankfurt, Jakarta and a solo exhibition in Rome. Alastair has exhibited in galleries in Cape Town and Johannesburg South Africa, London, Monaco and recently at the 2009 Chelsea Art Fair.
Now having completed his third year as a full time artist, Alastair is being recognised as a forerunner in carbon fibre sculpture and is busy with a number of private commissions and new projects.
Alastair’s work can be seen in selected galleries and private viewings by appointment. See his website for more info.
