Alastair Barnes

Alastair has been creating art for all of his life, and has partaken in numerous exhibitions throughout South Africa. Hout Bay Gallery has been representing him since 1999.

Alastair creates his bird sculptures in his garden workshop in Greyton, surrounded by his beloved dogs and collection of classic Land Rovers.

The sculptures are informed by a lifetime of observation and unbridled enthusiasm for the wild. He finishes each sculpture in the foundry himself, giving each bird the unique patination that makes them so popular with collectors.

“From the time that I was a very young boy I have been fascinated by birds.
I looked for nests and had one of the most celebrated birds egg collections ever, and learnt to do all the bird sounds accurately.

Birds are international ambassadors. They are the right size and lend themselves to a bit of realism, expressionism and impressionism. “
