Carlos Albert

SCULPTOR

(Madrid 1978).

Graduate of the faculty of Fine Arts, Madrid. (U.C.M.) 2001.

In my work the physical mounting of the piece plays an important role, frankly I feel comfortable myself with metal. Nonetheless I believe that materials aside the concept should always be the same: the sculpture from the essential.
