Carbon Bulldog by Artist Alastair Gibson is an engineered inspired sculpture made out of carbon. Sculpture limited to ten pieces.

Alastair Gibson has unique Carbon Art engineered inspired sculptures for sale with Wychwood Art in their art gallery and online. Alastair was born in 1962 near Johannesburg, South Africa. He completed his schooling at King Edward Vll boy’s school followed by two years compulsory national service in the South African army. Exposure to marine life during annual family vacations on the Natal South Coast inspired Alastair to take sculpture classes to show the way he saw interesting fast fish. With an interest in motor racing influenced by his father and an education in balance-engineering, Alastair set off to Europe with an ambition to work in the motor sport industry. This resulted in a career of twenty two years, fourteen of which were in formula one, four as lead mechanic for the Benetton F1 Team and ten as race team chief mechanic for the BAR and Honda Grand Prix Teams. Drawing similarities between modern motorsport engineering and his love for the natural world, Alastair uses his acquired engineering skills and experience to recycle F1 car parts sourced from Grand Prix teams to show his passion for art through his signature medium of carbon fibre sculpture. Alastair’s work has been exhibited world wide and his sculptures have been purchased by collectors in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Middle East and South Africa. Alastair’s work can be viewed in selected galleries, including Wychwood Art, in the UK, the United States, Europe, Russia, Dubai and South Africa. Now in his eighth year as a full time artist, Alastair is being recognised as a forerunner in carbon fibre sculpture and with his team is undertaking a variety of projects including private commissions, installations, a lifestyle product collection.
