Artist of the moment……..Alberto Biasi

 

Alberto Biasi is an Italian artist renown or his abstract mixed media works which include elements of Op-Art and also kinetic art.

Alberto Biasi was born in the province of Padua, Italy in the year 1937.

His works are famous for the fact that the surface of the image appears to shift as the viewer changes their position. You can even see this in the second video clip.

In this clip a montage of works over the artist’s lengthy career beginning in the 1950s:

 

To close we visit a show featuring Alberto Biasi that took place in 2012:

 

The artist is part of many prominent collections including the Museum of Modern Art located in New York City.

Price range information: Works range from $10,000 to $70,000.

I enjoy the mixture of kinetic and op art employed by Biasi. Whilst similar to such luminaries as Bridget Riley or Victor Vasarely, Biasi’s art has unique feel all to its own.
