Anton Alvarez’s (b. 1980, Uppsala) practise focuses on the design of systems, the processes of producing sculptural objects, as well as the tension between traditional craftsmanship and technological innovation. Rich in tradition while at the same time extremely unconventional, his work challenges the viewer’s perception of design and sculpture. Alvarez has an MFA from the Royal College of Art in London (2012) and a BFA from Konstfack in Stockholm (2009). He has been exhibited at Larsen Warner (Stockholm, 2021), Korean International Ceramic Biennale (2019), Church San Bernardino alle Monache (Milan, 2019), New Art Centre (Roche Court, 2018), Salon 94 (New York, 2017), and National Centre for Craft and Design (UK, 2016) among others. Alvarez lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.
