Alexis Laurent

Partner

Alexis develops artwork that deepens his interest in the dialogue between the natural world and the industrial one. His recent focus has been “living sculptures,” an assemblage of various materials – mostly metal – with living plants. These sculptures stem from his love of nature and architecture and the potential to redesign urban landscapes. He believes that, as a society, the more we “go digital” the more we will need to “go natural.” View Alexis’ profile here.
