Alexander Augustus

Alexander Augustus is a visual artist intrigued by the eccentric and dramatic mythologies of people; their stories, politics, hopes and fears. These archetypes are reflected strongly in all his work. Having been exhibited in Somerset House, Tate Modern, and archived in the National Portrait Gallery, Augustus is part of a new generation of artists who create spectacular installation works that are composed of meticulously made elements. He combines classic methods such as bronze-casting, woodblock, textiles, metalwork, film and theatre; with digital media such as CAD, animation, audio and 3D modelling. Trained in anthropology, archaeology and art history, before training as an artist in America and then at Central St Martins in London, his work is essentially a coming-together of ideas with processes of making.
