Artist's Website

Levy’s practice is multi-disciplinary and incorporates a breadth of forms including drawing, photography, painting, performance and video. Holding these disparate elements together is an ongoing enquiry into the nature of everyday life and a desire to find ways of translating the immediacy of lived experience into something tangible and thought-provoking. His work explores the relationship between accident and intention, the impulse to archive and the notion of what the artist terms ‘default aesthetics’.

Alastair Levy (b. London, 1979) graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2008. Recent shows include Dienstag Abend, Gdanska Galeria Miejska, Gdansk (2013); Public Assembly – An Alternative Summer Show, The White Building, London (2013); Ephemeral Self – Finite Projections, Galerie NTK, Prague (2013); Love Me, Benrimon Contemporary, New York (2012) and Circa 1960, Guest Projects, London (2012). His work is held by the Zabludowicz Collection in London.

Levy lives and works in London.
