  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) November 20, 2013 - Poignantly expressive and earnestly universal, the works of Spanish artist Alberto Illescas Moreno are inspired by the natural world and the people that inhabit it. Comprehensive in his interests, Illescas Moreno is inspired by all aspects of human experience, his works paeans to people, places, and time. Correspondingly, the artist does not limit himself to one medium or method; instead, he embraces and immerses himself in many techniques and materials, from painting to digital arts. All of his works are distinguished by a richly poetic atmosphere and tranquility exuded from his masterful blending of colors and forms. Having been an avid draftsman as a child, Illescas Moreno has found that his inquisitive nature has come to define his adulthood as well, encouraging him to portray things and people that he seeks to know. "I don't plan to be produce bold artworks, I just want to express my way of seeing and feeling things," he says. Softly intriguing, these works intoxicate with their simple, classic beauty.

    Born in Spain, Alberto Illescas Moreno lives in the small town of Cuevas Del Valle.

    About the Exhibition
    The artwork in Persistence of Form abounds with an enticingly lively sense of movement and energy which both reaches out to the audience and encourages us to dive into the art and go along for the ride. The pieces display personality and individual concerns, yet also possess a universal awareness that connects them to the shared experience of being human. The artists in Unbound Perspectives present their unique vision of existence and reality through works which are compelling and thoroughly creative in their insistence on leaving behind accepted boundaries and striking boldly out into new ground. In Divine Stardom: Lady Gioconda / a Solo Exhibition the artist presents work which combines harmony and a sense of stylistic diversity, for a surprisingly spiritual, and spirited, effect.

    The exhibitions begin on November 22, 2013 and continue until December 13, 2013. The opening reception is on the evening of Thursday December 5, 2013. Entrance is free and art lovers are warmly invited to attend.
