Alec Stevens

Alec Stevens lives and works in Bristol. He trained in the University of Brighton’s 3D Craft and Design degree and is specialised in creating highly-detailed sculpted objects in wood, with strong ideas behind them.

Alec has been working with the National Trust for over six years creating engaging sculptures and installations that reveal new elements within their collections. His practice has been open to collaborations, working jointly with commissioners, academics and other talented artists. He is co-founder of ‘Polari Press’, a publishing house specialising in producing Artist books, zines and objects exploring LGBTQ+ themes and histories. He is currently resident artist within Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio where he is developing artworks and experiences that are enhanced through the use of technology.

Alec’s earliest memory of ITV is watching with his dad. His eyes were drawn to the corner of the screen every 15 mins, where a black and white graphic display would pulsate. This moment informed him that the advertisements were coming, so he should enjoy the show that little bit more because it was soon to end. Using this inspiration, Alec has created a visual ident for ITV that focuses on a graphic, animated texture that plays with light and shadow.
