Alfonso Albacete is a Spanish artist who was born in 1950. He has had several galleries and museum exhibitions, including at the Galería Marlborough, Madrid and at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.
Part of the group of painters who critics and art historians have included him in the Art Movement called New Figuration in Madrid.
Albacete’s painting focuses especially on a vital and open chromaticism influenced by American abstraction and pop art.
Alfonso Albacete has become one of the most prominent representatives of Spanish painting, and his work is on the hinge where it sits figuration and abstraction.
He trained with Juan Bonafe pictorially, then starting his studies of Fine Arts and Architecture in Valencia and Madrid.
His work since the early nineties is open to an iconography that shows constant over the passing of his pictorial production: the human figure, still life and landscape, but in the nineties has been open to more abstract approaches.
His work is exhibited at the Marlborough Gallery in Madrid.
In 1988 the Spanish Museum of Contemporary Art dedicated his first retrospective.
