Spanish artist Albano joins Artistics Gallery
Spanish artist Albano has been developing a
rather extraordinary work for more than ten
years. Its boldness and originality were
recognized in his home country even before he
had finished his studies at the Fine Arts.
Refusing to be labeled an abstract painter,
Albano claims his work is firmly planted in reality:
that of the studio where he works and the
landscapes he has crossed.
The paintings of his most recent series, Atlas, which are now available on Artistics, are a mix of
souvenirs of lands visited (the vivid green of the Castilian crop fields in the Spring) and tokens of
more personal spaces (traces of his work in his studio: remnants of paint taken from his palette,
Pantone color cards, Adobe-like checkered transparent background patterns etc.). To the extent
that the paintings can be interpreted as a personal diary, and as a reflection of the creative process
« The elements I work into my composition come from a very real world, a reality I have
lived. It is therefore impossible for me to label my work abstract, geometric or anything else,
or indeed give it any other conventional label. »
According to art critic Brane Kovic, what Albano's painting reveals is that : « meticulously
elaborated color field acts as a trap that absorbs the gaze and forces the viewer to gradually
explore other elements on the picture plane. While recognizing and identifying them we become
more and more conscious that the real subject of each single image is the question of its
production and structuring or, in other words, that the artist keeps thinking painterly analyzing his
medium and the process of visual creation. »
Albano attributes a fundamental role to the composition, more still than the color and the texture.
He composes his paintings as one would compose a piece of music: in terms of harmony,
syncopes and vividly changing rhythms. And in a toing and froing between add and retract: « the
paint applied by brush accounts for perhaps 5%. The rest is worked in with spatulas, rulers and
cards… I work on several canvasses at a time and every now and then I'll take some paint off one
to put on another. To me that has an almost magic quality. It gives the paintings more depth and
creates a dialog between them. »

Albano Hernández Domingues was born in Ávila, Spain in 1988. Today he lives and works between
Cambridge (UK) and Madrid. After high-school he went to the school of Fine Arts in Ávila and
subsequently a fine arts degree at Complutense University in Madrid, obtaining his diploma in
2012. His talents as a painter were recognized early on, he was barely 18 when he won the Mario
Antolin Grant at the BMW Prize, which secured him his first individual exhibition in Madrid at the
Alfama gallery. The same prize attributed him with a medal in 2009 and 2010 and finally in 2012
the BMW prize for painting - the highest distinction and a veritable stepping stone for his career.
Other awards and several exhibitions later, his work has now joined different prestigious private
and public collections: Infanta Elena (Tomelloso) contemporary art museum, the city of Madrid,
National library of Spain, the José Saramago foundation (Lisbon), The Valparaiso foundation
(Madrid), la Caja Madrid foundation, etc.
