Mediums Used

Alan Dun studied sculpture at Chelsea School of Art in London and graduated with an honour`s degree in sculpture in 1972. In the early years of his career he made figures for waxworks and took a number of private commissions, as well as assisting and enlarging work for established sculptors. In the early 1980’s he established an experimental design and build studio, bringing together cross disciplinary skills such as engineering, musical composition, computer programming, painting and of course, sculpture and modelling skills. From this studio Alan and his team were commissioned to make many exhibits for public institutions, museums, galleries, as well as private individuals from across the world. After 15 years of successfully running this business from a studio in London, Alan decided to leave London and go back to his previous sculptural interests. He now works from a studio just outside of Bath. His primary interest is in modelling and casting as the central process of making, but experience of running the design studio has given him tremendous depth of experience working in different medium and a huge versatility in how he tackles his sculpture. The flexibility of modelling and casting as a process is the springboard for his artwork and experimentation with sculptural form. He works on everything from the domestic scale, to the very large scale. His largest sculpture to date was a 25ft high silver backed gorilla.
