Alfie Carpenter

I am largely inspired by the tapestry of textured terrain around East Anglia and my response to the land is quite impulsive, utilising whatever can be found in the vicinity to concoct a rich playground of materials: hoover bags, parcel tape, old (clean!) clothing, newspaper, candles or bog roll – giving ‘ugly’ items a chance at glamour.

Born in 1989 and raised in rural Suffolk, Alfie grew up juggling two of his first loves: music and art. At 19, he moved to Leeds, West Yorkshire to complete a music degree at Leeds College of Music, specialising in singing and composition. Alfie addresses both music and art with a similar ethos: charisma, drama, experimentation and, above all, enjoyment.
