Alfred Beesley

Alfred Beesley is a visual artist. He creates interactive sculptures that refer to the life cycle of plants. Using papier-mâché Beesley creates replicas of fruit and objects associated with growing plants. Beesley's recent works include ‘Apple Tree’- a tree with a harvest of a variety of fruit and a basket for picking.

Beesley is part of Studio Me, Blue Room’s artist development project. Find out more about Studio Me, Blue Room and discover other Studio Me artists at the bottom of this page.

"My ideas come from my brain. I said to myself I’d like to make a nice lovely apple tree."
