Alice Alva, Oblique Strategies

Alice Alva is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Wellington who works across drawing and illustration, textiles, painting and graphic design. Located at the intersection between art and craft, Alva’s embroideries explore pattern, architecture and the process of drawing with thread.

Alva has exhibited across New Zealand and Australia and was a finalist in the Wallace Art Award and the Parkin Drawing Prize in 2018. With witty titles like: Use an old idea and Remember quiet evenings her colourful works for the Point Blank exhibition posit motivational words for a frustrated artist.
