Artist of the moment – Alfie in Lower Fifth

Alfie Stone art work

The art department regularly recognises the achievements of individual pupils in the senior school through the award of the title, ‘Artist of the Moment’. Entries cover a wide range of disciplines, including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation and mixed media celebrating the diverse talents of pupils in our co-educational day school.

Alfie in Lower Fifth is the artist of the moment this week. This is a digital response to the broad theme of Architecture which has spanned the whole year. Inspiration has come from the work of the American Pop artist Robert Rauschenberg. Alfie has photographed local landmarks around Exeter and layered this imagery over American street signs and brownstone buildings synonymous with New York City.  This an accomplished piece, well done Alfie.
