About the Artist
Argentinian conceptual artist and architect Pedro Alberti experiments with philosophical themes and incorporates these messages in every aspect of his creative process. Using handmade cotton paper, he fuses painting, sculpting, and drawing to enrich large-scale abstract figurative works. Alberti often uses his handmade paper as symbolic texts to narrate the message behind each painting. Poetry often being a layer in each of his uniquely constructed canvases. Alberti splits his canvases into geometric parts that form the basis of his work, exploring dimensions in the context of levels his background in architecture provides a different perspective and angle for each visual—often drawing several scenes that deliver a story of their own. Building from the subdivisions, Alberti then proceeds to crystallize his choice of soft and cloud-like hues, using bold colors sparingly.
