Alvin is a multidisciplinary visual artist who works with video, digital media and installation. His work explores the connections between narratives of failure, broken relationships and memory, with a particular emphasis on the leftovers of the past. In his ongoing practice, he experiments with the manipulation of original and found materials to show the threads connecting the past and reality, and he also attaches physical and virtual signifiers in these appropriated visuals where the original context has lost its meaning. As a result, his works serve as relics of failed love and abandoned ideals.

Alvin is also an accomplished director/photographer specialising in beauty and fashion. He has created both global and regional campaigns for luxury brands like Dior, Clarins, Laneige, SK-II, YSL Beauté, Olay, Neutrogena, M.A.C Cosmetics, Byredo, NARS Cosmetics, LVMH and Shiseido. He is also a regular contributor to Vogue.
