Alfred’s Art contains a wide variety of influences and ideas mainly conveyed and found through his love of music. 

The art piece submitted by Alfred does not have a title, the first ideas Alfred had about the theme of ‘solitude’ all conveyed very dark dingy images.

However, after researching Alfred found that solitude does not always convey an image of isolation and loneliness.

The first ideas that Alfred had were the ideas of empty Mediterranean swimming pools. The image submitted was heavily influenced primarily by the work of a London born artist called Johnny pockets, the image submitted was created by Alfred, he created the image by painting it on a canvas using acrylic paints. He then scanned the image on a printer and re-worked and edited it digitally on photoshop where he improved the colour, brightness.
