About Alan Brazier

The artist in his Hoxton studio, London 1984

  Alan Brazier was taught in the European tradition of classical figurative sculpture under John Selman at Weymouth College, Dorset, England from 1976-1978. In 1979, he moved to London where working principally in stone, marble and bronze, he directed his skills toward developing a powerful, personal sculptural expression. A figurative sculptor, Alan Brazier uses the human form to express the themes of human nature. The curves, angles, and surfaces of his sculpture tend towards a certain level of abstraction that together creates dynamic movement and energy. The change in his environment from London to New York has undoubtedly influenced his recent works. Many of these works incorporate new mediums such as steel, water, and glass that further extend his sculptural language.
