In the past couple of years, if you’ve looked around France or elsewhere, you would have seen walls covered with a face, imaginative and withered, created by none other than Alber, the epitome of the graffiti and street art universe.
Alber discovered graffiti at the age of 15 and considers himself first and foremost a graffiti artist, and second an artist. His passion for the craft never diminishing, slowly he started to venture outside the world of graffiti to find a more personalized form of expression in other artistic mediums.
From graffiti, however, Alber maintains the fluidity with which one draws the lines and covers the surface thereby combining the fluidity of graffiti to bring lines and form together to create figurative images. In keeping in line with tradition, color is applied with a spray can, adding definition and light to the assembled compositions to reveal a face with excessive proportions, from a frontal, profile and three-quarters view: blue eyes staring out from under heavy eyelids.
