Born in 1977, Alastair Mackie has shown his work extensively in the UK and abroad. In 2004 Charles Saatchi purchased a number of works for the New Blood exhibition at the Saatchi gallery, which led to his first solo show in 2005. In 2009 he had his second solo show Not Waving But Drowning at The David Roberts Art Foundation along with his first public outdoor work Mimetes Anon, commissioned by Contemporary Art Society Consultancy, exhibited at the Economist Plaza in St. James’s, London.

Recent group shows have included Through the Looking Glass at Me Collectors Room in Berlin, Memories of the Future at La Maison Rouge in Paris, and Restless Nature at Newlyn Art Gallery, Cornwall.

Alastair lives and works in Cornwall.
