As the creative hub of the UK, Brighton is filled with plenty of passionate and hard working film-makers and the latest release from local director Ben Cox, Alan Williams: Creatures of the Deep, offers an insight into the mind and work of the immensely talented Brighton sculptor Alan Williams.
Director Ben Cox uses beautiful cinematic images and music from the talented Brighton-based music producer Mount Bank to portray this wonderful biopic about an artist of “great talent, imagination and humility”.
Alan’s creative practice began in his childhood, creating fantastical hybrid creatures using old toys and a tube of glue.
Currently entering his 14thth year of practice, Alan’s passion is making animals and creatures from mostly found and recycled metal; transforming recognisable everyday objects into beautifully detailed, sculptural artworks.
His unique hand-crafted works imaginatively reference nature; animals, plants, textures, form and movement. Commissions include sculpture, architectural installations, furniture and many of his public artworks are on display in locations throughout Sussex and the UK.
To see this fascinating short on the work of Alan Williams, watch the video below.
