Gaining inspiration from the glamorous sport of F1 and incorporating motor racings hi-tech and innovative materials into his designs Alastair marries his early childhood passion for marine life with his creative engineering talents to produce his unique carbon fibre sculptures. These were first shown in 2002 at a Lucky Strike sponsored Tribe art exhibition at the Boiler House in Brick Lane, London which went onto tour seven different countries.
Alastair has recently made a sculpture of a Koi carp for Ross Brawn and is working on several commissions for Hammerhead and Mako sharks. As Alastair says, ‘A shark is a Grand Prix car in nature’.
