AlfP has been an autodidact artist for 24 years
"My road toward becoming an artist started when I was 20 years old and a new neighbor moved in to the house next to my parent´s place.
Kurt Vincent, his wife Hanne and their boy Jonas. One day Kurt was messing around with something in his garden. I couldn’t quite see what it was, but it peaked my interest. So I came closer and looked over the hedge. Kurt was making a wooden sculpture from a tree he had cut down in his garden.
We got to talking and he invited me into his home. What I discovered where colorful abstract paintings with whimsical shapes as well as sculptures.
My feelings started to boil over. I felt as if I was hit by a hammer and didn’t know how to process all these impressions – but my interest was aroused.
Four years later I was living on the edge of society. My life needed a change – the arts became my way out.
About 8 years ago is when I found my own artistic expression. My style so to say!
I create street-art and pop-art inspired pieces as well as abstract paintings.
As an artist I love looking around for inspiration- playing and perfecting the expression of my own work.
One of the things that I have been working on for the last few years is up- and recycling and how to get my art to melt with things other people do not deem to be of use anymore."
Alf lives and works in Esbjerg, Denmark.
