Alberto de Blobs

(Barcelona, 1982)

Alberto de Blobs, born in 1982 started his career as a painter at the young age of 12,
writing graffiti in Barcelona. From wild style letter painting, his style gradually evolved
towards today's elaborate mixture of figurative and free form abstraction. With its
open muralist approach, de Blobs' highly illustrative visual language combines
references to his subcultural roots and art historical predecessors alike and with ease.

One of ƚhe most active "Wild style" artist, a graffiti writer, illustrator and
multidisciplinary creator, Alberto de Blobs includes multiple art historical references in his work. Ever since the 1990s, Blobs has been building up a name for himself in the graffiti scene, as well as finding a spot on the panorama of contemporary art.
Merging all types of influences, genres and styles, Blobs forged a brilliant outlook on
creativity which is presented through his search for new experiences. This newly-made reality escapes all conventions and breaks free from links to any particular aesthetic trend.

Born in tumultuous times and surroundings, Alberto de Blobs has always kept that
aggressive, risky, and innovative approach to his artwork as well. Always making sure to leave room for new values, he continued to grow and develop his creativity in
various ways. Since the 90's, Blobs has been an avid graffiti writer, making his mark on the walls of Barcelona and forging his own style during the years. In 1994, the graffiti writer made his debut with paintings, and at the age of 18 he started working
independently as an artistic painter and decorator. Over time, the prolific Spanish
artist came to meet other various artists and began elevating his work to a whole new level, he made several artistic collaborations through which he expanded his creative horizons and continued to experiment further. Sprung from the depths of his
subconscious, his characters emerge deformed and twisted, reflecting the soul of the
artist. Dreamscapes, clumsy people, not always human-like figures, dirty and crowded scenes, open skies, and various other subjects are represented through the unique vision of Blobs.
