Artist in Residence at Tower Bridge
Following an open call to artists in December 2016, Tower Bridge is delighted to announce that our first Artist in Residence is visual artist, director and creative facilitator, Alex Evans.
Using the Bridge as artistic stimuli and exploring the themes of appearance and disguise, Alex has been using his residency to create a series of artworks in response to the Bridge's unique structural forms. You can see the collection of original drawings, prints and objects in our new exhibition, Beauty and the Bridge, in the South Tower.
Alex has also worked alongside children and local community groups throughout this residency and the works created by Boutcher Primary School are also on display in Tower Bridge's West Walkway.
Inspired by the intersection between architecture, geometry and nature, Alex produces densely intricate pen and ink drawings. To see examples of Alex's detailed artworks visit his website or follow him on Twitter, Instagram or Vimeo.
For further insights into his Residency and to keep abreast of developments bookmark Alex's blog and keep checking back on our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram). Here, we will be sharing Alex's work, process, experiences and reflections.
Our first Artist in Residence programme finished in January 2018, with the second project planned to begin later in 2018.
