ABOUT

 
Alberto Perezsan (Madrid 1978) spends his childhood and adolescence glued to pens and pencils.

From an early age he devotes his time to drawing, awakening the enthusiasm of his arts professors who encourage his education.

After winning several painting prizes in his teenage years, he enters the University of Fine Arts in Madrid in 1998. He combines his studies with the scholarship of the Contemporary Art and Authors Foundation, an entity directed by the Chilean painter Guillermo Muñoz Vera, who taught him all the secrets of the great painters of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

During these years he continues to win numerous awards that opened the doors to international galleries.

In 2001 he received a postgraduate scholarship to study at the Accademia di Brera, Milan (Italy). His atelier at that time was located on the ground floor of the Brera Gallery so, during his breaks, he could effortlessly admire the details of the Christ of Mantegna, the death of Cleopatra or the Tintorettos, Tizianos or Caravaggios as if they were accompanying him in his work.

Two years later he received a scholarship to develop his work in Amsterdam (Holland). There he comes into contact with an important group of artists from all over the world who continuously inspired the work of the artist.

It is in Holland where he makes his last works before temporarily moving away from the world of visual art and to the city of Barcelona.

During this period his works have been shown in galleries and museums throughout Madrid, Milan, Amsterdam and Miami.

After a 10-year hiatus, Alberto Perezsan returns to face the blank canvas.
