About

Alberto Jose Sanchez was born in 1979 in Caracas, Venezuela, where he grew up. While showing much interest in painting and other plastic arts since an early age, he attended the Metropolitan University of Venezuela and graduated with a degree in Business in 2003. During his studies, he maintained his contact with the artistic world.  His passion for art led him years later to study contemporary art at the Metropolitan University.

As a young artist, Alberto started experimenting with different techniques and materials. He was particularly interested in kinetic art; he explored this art form extensively. The main source of inspiration for this period was Maestro Carlos Cruz-Diez, whom Alberto would   meet and visit at his Art Studio in Paris, France many years later.

In 2007 Alberto began to develop pieces with an optical abstract-geometric character; this is the moment in his artistic development when he found his real passion. His pieces are based on bi-dimensional geometric figures, which suggest and generate tri-dimensional formations as a result of the use of contrasting colors and shadows.

"With my work I seek to generate a  three dimensional sensory impact through the fusion of reason and visual logic. Shapes and lines in a plane define the structure of the work, that when combined with the proper application of shadows and colors, create the impression of the third dimension and the unreal space. Virtual shadows become a crucial element of my work, highlighting the subjectivity of the three dimensions. 

 I want to get into the spectator conscience, trying to generate a different perception from reality. I want to create dialectics between what he sees and what is actually there, to generate an additional pleasure, more than the esthetic pleasure"
