Albert Pinya

(Palma de Mallorca, 1985)

Albert Pinya lives and works in the island of Mallorca (Spain).

Pinya’s universe is simple, energetic and dynamic. Through the use of multiple techniques - painting, installation and sculpture - he creates a world full of characters and colours. He takes inspiration from movies, TV series and cartoons.

Since 2018, Albert has started a collaboration with the ceramist Català Roig (Palma 1973). Thanks to the juxtaposition of traditional and contemporary expressions, this creative alliance has given birth to a new artistic vision.

He received several prizes as the Medal of Honour BMW Award (Madrid, 2016) and AECA Arco Madrid 2014 Prize from the Spanish Association of Critics (Madrid, 2014); Recently, he has participated in exhibitions such as Teoría de la alegria curated by Enrique Juncosa & Elena Ruiz at MACE Eivissa, Spain (2020); On rau la realitat? curated by Biel Amer, Soad Houman and Catalina Joy at Es Baluard Museum of Contemporary Art, Palma de Mallorca, Spain (2019); Pinyin Exercise curated by Susana Sanz in Naves Matadero Madrid, Spain (2019).
