Alexis Bamforth/EEC is a British artist and ecology catalyst who explores relationships between the natural world and socio-economic systems. Evolved from Conceptual, Land Art, and Arte Povera, he uses cultural references to discuss ideas around human and nature equality. His multidisciplinary work has probed social trends and humankind's affects on Earth since 1989. Much of it decays or evolves over time. The material and physical change are important, reflecting the natural life cycle and reminding us of the possibility of change.
Working with Sui Jianguo and next to the late Gustav Metzger encouraged already innovative tendencies. Playing with the modes of art itself he manages to break new ground across multiple mediums. Bamforth's manipulated photocopies predate Sigmar Polke's, his Banana predates Maurizio Cattelan's, and his satirical Rewilding NFT stolen for 3.6m is probably still the smallest artwork ever.
Despite exhibiting internationally from Times Square N.Y. to London's Victoria & Albert Museum, most work is to be found in public spaces, for the people, for social purposes. Essentially his work is a charitable giving of time and ideas. If you can donate even a small amount to his critical socially responsible projects, becoming a patron will make a huge difference: www.patreon.com/systemchange
