Alberto Murillo

Alberto Murillo is a self-taught painter, who began his career as an interior designer. His works consist in big color fields made with vibrant colors, that are greatly inspired by his homeland, Spain, and Latin America, because of their idyllic landscapes and vibrant cities. He identifies with Abstract Expressionism, and even though his motifs have changed over time, his technique always stayed consistent. Murillo pours acrylic or a polymer emulsion onto board, and then manipulates it, he says that “they are liquid skins that can be pulled, pushed”. Finally, he covers the work with a resin coating. The artists’ earlier works were mostly abstract, but in his more recent works he also includes icons and products of consumer culture.
