Alfonso Albacete

Alfonso Albacete (Antequera, Malaga, Spain, 1950) is an important figure of the late seventies, whose work link up on a powerful chromaticism, which results into a dialogue between abstraction and figuration.

 

Since the early nineties, his work is based in three main genres of painting: the still life, the human body and the landscape paiting. This iconography has been maintained throughout his career, always under the influence of American Expressionism, Pop Art and mythology. In 1988 the 'MEAC Museo Español de Arte Contemporáneo' in Madrid curated a retrospective exhibition.

 

His work forms part of museums and public collections such as CAAM Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain), Colección de Arte Contemporáneo “La Caixa” (Barcelona, Spain), Fundación Juan March (Madrid, Spain) and MNCARS Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid, Spain).
