Tomaso Albertini is an Italian artist.
In December 2015 Tomaso Albertini leaves Milano Italy and lands in New York City to pursue his artistic quest and dream. This city will change Tomaso forever, both artistically and personally.
The artist immediately creates something unique and innovative that will become his brand, creating the perfect fusion between sculpture and painting.
New York became a true source of inspiration, its streets impacting directly his color palette, its society nourishing the violent contrast in his creations; a way to express the contradiction of extreme poverty clashing with wealth in the same city in a surreal balance.
Tomaso Albertini develops a unique style and technique for his portraits through the use of cardboard, a symbol of the consumerist New York. He creates three-dimensional art that allows him to accomplish the figure as if it were a sculpture and then paint on it as if it were a canvas. This unique technique introduces dynamics approaching sculpture. It is, in fact, a hybrid manifestation.
Albertini has worked with Fat Free Art gallery and Sotheby's, among other relevant galleries and auction houses and has been featured on publications including D/railed Mag and The Guardian.
