Albert Pinya

Albert Pinya (Palma de Mallorca, 1985)

Difficult artist to classify. Painter, sculptor, muralist, illustrator, designer… He even practices curatorial practice. Rabidly contemporary, transversal and versatile.

One of the lines of research, within his artistic practice, focuses on the study of the decline and evolution of painting itself and its corresponding variations, limitations (if it has any) and possibilities. Like a kind of installation painting where there is no longer just a single protagonist surface. Rather, different games and connections are established between what happens inside and outside the frame, between architecture and space and even painting is transformed into a three-dimensional object and declines towards sculpture.

Like the poetry of inexperience, the intention is none other than the constant search for new unknowns to be solved and new paradigms to discover. Always with an eye toward the future, the unknown and the uncertain as the principle of the possible. Fleeing from concepts such as the permanent and the static.

In 2007 Pinya received the First Prize of the "Artjove. Illes Balears" program and was selected by the Italian curator Achille Bonito Oliva to be part of the exhibition "No va más. The game’s on", at the Vostell-Malpartida Museum (Cáceres , Spain). In 2014 the artist received the AECA Award at ARCO Madrid, and in 2016 the BMW Painting Award Medal of Honor. In recent years, Pinya also participated in exhibitions such as "Cambra de Combustió" in collaboration with Català-Roig, curated by Mercedes Estarellas at Es Baluard Museu d’Art Contemporani; "Recent Works" curated by Gianluca Ranzi -MAC/Museum of Contemporary Art of Lissone (Monza, Italy)-, "Teoría de la Alegría" curated by Enrique Juncosa & Elena Ruiz -MACE/Eivissa Museum of Contemporary Art (Ibiza, Spain) -, "Visto y no visto. Nuevos coleccionismos en las Islas Baleares" curated by Lorena Martínez de Corral -Matadero (Madrid, Spain)-, "On rau la realitat?" curated by Biel Amer, Soad Houman and Catalina Joy -Es Baluard Museum of Contemporary Art (Palma, Spain)-, "Lost in Chaos" curated by Rossella Farinotti -Palazzo delle Stelline (Milan, Italy), among others.
