Pedro Alves was born in Abrantes, Portugal. In 2010 he completed his Fine Art degree from Winchester School of Art in the discipline of painting. His art is greatly inspired by the incomplete narrative, the symbolisms and the ambiguity present in ancient artefacts. His working process is a constant and never ending investigation where the properties of the materials craft the direction and evolution of the final piece. William Turnbull along with the art of Chadwick, Geoffrey clark, Giacometti are among some of the artists that influence and inspire his work.
