Alberto Murillo is a native of Madrid, Spain, but has resided in cities and countries around the world. Murillo has lived a creative life, working in a variety of media.
Alberto Murillo's artistry can be seen as an exploration into the boundless potential of the Abstract Expressionist genre. His works weave together the ephemeral qualities of color and form to create dynamic compositions that encapsulate his unique artistic voice.
Murillo's large scale pieces are imbued with an inherent sense of freedom and vitality. The interplay of vivid colors not only reflect the artist's emotional state but also evoke profound responses from the viewer. His artistry goes beyond mere representation or expression; it's a conduit for emotions, experiences, and perceptions.
A signature trait in Murillo's style is his skillful manipulation of color. He has an intuitive understanding of how color can alter mood and meaning, applying bold, saturated hues alongside muted, earthy tones to create a sense of balance and tension. This dichotomy mirrors life's complexities, where calm and chaos coexist and form an integral part of our experiences. What sets Murillo apart is his ability to combine elements of both the intuitive and the planned in his work.
His artwork has been exhibited in over 40 shows across the United States, as well as Europe, and he is currently represented by highly-regarded fine art galleries across the country. Alberto's Art is featured in a number of selected collections including the Givenchy Family Collection, and private art collections including Coca-Cola, Colliers International, Holland & Knight, Wells Fargo and Bristol Myers- Squibb.
A self-taught artist, he now lives and works in NYC
