Pedro Alves was born in Abrantes, Portugal in 1977, currently lives and works in Winchester, England.
In 2010 he completed his Fine Art degree from Winchester School of Art, in the discipline of painting. In the following years his creative practice takes a new direction towards sculpture and ceramics.
His making process engages intuitive possibilities, with shapes and forms continuously been pushed around — gradually over a period of time, until there is an evidence of something exquisite being created.
“ I am mostly inspired by the quality of ambiguity present in ancient artefacts, archaic figures, their worn condition, their incomplete narrative, the incomplete picture, a world of imagination. “
Pedro has exhibited in the UK and abroad, both part of group and solo shows.
