Alfred Kenneth


Kenneth Alfred was born in Trinidad in 1959, where he lived until his departure for France in 1985. In Paris, he enrolled at the National School of Fine Arts before being admitted a few years later to Villa Medici in Rome. In 1994, he won the Lacouturière Engraving Prize in Paris.

With an exceptional technical mastery, Alfred combines multiple engraving processes together in the same work. While his first prints are haunted by the memory of the carnival masks of his childhood, the artist gradually moves towards an evanescence where formal harmony goes hand in hand with his passion for music. His works have been acquired by The Museum for Drawing and Original Prints, Gravelines, France, the National Library, Paris, the National Fund for Contemporary Art, among other collections both public and private.

Added to his activity in drawing and painting, for more than ten years he has been investigating the
potential of the association of new techniques of reproduction with traditional print-making techniques.
This has lead to a questioning of the presentation as well as the surfaces used in printed works.
