“I have always believed that all artistic expression is basically an abstraction of real life,” says the innovative artist, Pedro Alberti. Building subtle compositions, he layers his canvases with layered boxes and rough, ghost like forms. The geometry of each composition serves as a reminder of the fragility of the abstracted images on the surface. Part painting and part assemblage, Alberti’s work is exploratory and immersive, allowing viewers to experience shifting interiors and exteriors in a multidimensional space. Click here to see more artworks by the artist.

“I believe my artwork can be a brand-new style of art,” says Taiwanese artist, Han-Yuan Yu. Combining an academic oil palette with vibrant colors and folkloric themes, his paintings juxtapose figurative compositions with decorative elements. What makes Yu’s work so unique is the level of expressionism captured in his subjects. He seeks to tell a story, to unravel a narrative and draw the viewer into his imaginative world. Click here to see more artworks by the artist.
