Albert Pinya

Albert Pinya is one of the Majorcan artists with the most international projection of his generation. Painter, sculptor, muralist, illustrator, designer… he also addresses curatorial practice. Pinya’s artwork is transverse and versatile, has its own identifiable style, and in his work, he applies the codes of popular culture, comic culture, illustration, and an ingenuous and concise aesthetic that hides an accurate treatment of the topics he explores.

His work is based on an intentional and ironic naivety that succeeds in dismantling the perverse structures of reality. His work denies l’art pour l’art and and can be understood as a mode of expression, eminently communicative and a kind of art that must always be based on an ideology. Therefore, rather than talking about “artistic creations”, we should talk about “artistic reaction”.

Pinya’s work has received several recognition awards: the Premi AECA (ARCOmadrid, 2014), the Medalla d’Honor Premi BMW de Pintura (Madrid, 2016) and the first prize of the “Art Jove Illes Balears” program of the Govern de les Illes Balears (2007). His work can be found in the collections of Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern I Contemporani in Palma, in the Cittadella degli Archivi del Comune di Milano or in the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Lissone (Italy).
