Albert Llobet Portell is a contemporary artist whose abstract paintings explore the richness of colors, textures, lines, and compositions. Born in Figueres (the same city as Dalí), his strong connection with both Cataluña and Dalí was the inspiration behind his decision to study the arts and make art his vocation. He traveled south to Barcelona, where he studied at ELISAVA (School of design and engineering). His studies, the general artistic atmosphere in Barcelona, and meeting people from various fields of art and design have influenced Albert greatly, making him grow as an artist. This growth only continued when he participated in an exchange program at Rhode Island School of Design, United States, and graduated from the University of Southampton, London. He is now an experienced artist, known for his strong and powerful artwork.
