Alberto Spinetti

Biography

 

Alberto Spinetti was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1973. He is a sculptor and painter whose work spans a variety of media, including assemblages and free standing sculptures in bronze, iron and wood.

His work is minimalist, yet colorful, featuring pared-down human figures whose melancholic, elongated forms are often accompanied by simple, geometric objects that bring to mind ancient civilizations or Mayan iconography.

 

Spinetti obtained his BA in the Armando Reverón Fine Arts University Institute in Caracas and then went on to train internationally at the Kyoto City University of Arts in Japan and the Higher Polytechnic Institute of Valencia, Spain.

 

The artist has participated in numerous exhibitions, including shows in Japan, United States, Spain, Colombia and Venezuela. In 2011 he took part in New York Art Week and his work features in a Norwegian art collection.
