Alberto Serrano - Feature Artist of the Week
ALBERTO SERRANO is a young Spanish based artist whose works are creating a great deal of interest with exhibitions in Madrid, Venice and Florence. Towards the end of 2016 he enjoyed a near sell-out at the Padua Art Fair and at a recent gallery viewing in Madrid one of his works was acquired for the private collection of Baroness von Thyseen. A graduate of Madrid's School of Fine Arts, confidently working in both oils and watercolours, Serrano displays a maturity of style and mastery of technique beyond his 28 years.
The contemporary rendition of these two large scale equine oils is accentuated by a vey personal hands-on message from the artist whose palm prints are a discernible as part of the artworks. Majestic in scale, the stallions each emerge from a dark canvas, brought to life through brushstrokes of verdigris and bronze. Both work are presented in imported Italian Bellini frames.
