Alberto Peral

Alberto Peral (Santurce, Basque Country, ESP, 1966) has a degree in Fine Arts from the UPV (University of the Basque Country) and belongs to the generation of artists who emerged in the early nineties around the effervescence of the Arteleku Art Centre. He later spent a year at the Spanish Academy in Rome and currently lives and works in Barcelona.

His language incorporates the formal contributions of the classical avant-garde, in a process of constant formal rediscovery. His simple and essential forms find the symbolic power they contain. Shapes, circularity, rotation, light, colour, the surface of materials and dialogue with space are fundamental elements with which he constructs a poetics of form and spatio-temporal meaning.

In 2009, together with Sinèad Spelman and Luis Bisbe, he founded HALFHOUSE, a not-for-profit space that still exists today, and which for the past 10 years has programmed solo exhibitions by national and international artists, as well as workshops, conferences and artist residencies.

His work has been shown in centres such as the Reina Sofía, the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin), the Hamburger Bahnhof (Berlin) and, most recently, the Centro de Arte Tecla Sala in L’Hospitalet and the Patio Herreriano in Valladolid.
