Alex Turp | BA (Hons) Illustration and Visual Media


My name’s Alex, I’m on BA (Hons) Illustration and Visual
Media and this project is called Make Me and it’s about toxic masculinity. It was a
really personal project – one of my oldest friends, one of my flatmates, he began to get
into a depression and he tried to take his own life and I started to wonder why
these sorts of things were happening. And I discovered that he felt like he
couldn’t get any help and so I decided I might try making a project about it so I
could try and talk to him about it. The process of painting was actually
really kind of therapeutic for me and him. It allowed us to kind of talk about what
was going on. Through the process of this course I’ve done performance pieces, I’ve
made paintings, video art, and the fact it engages with so many different houses within the
world of design and art, that’s the thing that I’ve taken away from it. The fact that I can take any
medium and convey a message throughout anything. So the versatility that I’ve gained
from this course is probably the most important thing.
