Alfie Bradley

Alfie was born in SE London in 1990 but at the age of three moved to rural France, where his parents and two younger brothers still live.

After school he spent two years at lycée in central France studying as a tailleur de pierre (stone carver) and a further year on the borders of Germany at a lycée specialising in sculpture before moving to England in 2013 where he learnt how to weld and work with metal and his professional career began.

He has created many impressive sculptures in that time from his first project – a RHINO’s HEAD which sits in the foyer of DEFRA in London, to the internationally famous SPOON GORILLA – a 4m high sculpture built from 40,000 welded spoons for the famous spoon- bender Uri Geller with many other commissioned pieces along the way. After completing the gorilla Alfie had a light-bulb moment and came up with the idea for his current artwork, ‘KNIFE ANGEL’, his most ambitious project to date. A 27ft high sculpture made of over 100,000 weapons surrendered to amnesty knife bins around the country, it is currently on a city tour of the UK.
