A London based italian artist, professional, internationally sold and UK exhibited mixed media artist. Born in Naples (Italy) Alberto has been very creative since an early age, and for this reason at school he was nicknamed ‘the artist’.
His passion for figurative art, in particular sculpture, led him to study art and to be the art assistant of leading contemporary Neapolitan artists.
In 1994 he moved to London to further his art studies and career. Firstly he enrolled on a foundation course in fine art and subsequently a BA in Art for the Community, which he successfully completed with the specialization in mosaics.
At present, using recycled magazines that would otherwise be thrown away to give life to artworks , is central to his practice. Working from his home studio as a full-time, professional artist, all his artworks are made up by folded and manipulated paper and transformed into textural geometrical forms, which ultimately developed into sculptural pieces in their own right.
