As a self-taught artist and descendant of Mexican migrant workers, Andrew Alba's paintings, drawings, sculpture, and installation evoke an emotional response while still maintaining relevant commentary on contemporary politics and society. Alba has exhibited work throughout the Pacific Northwest and Utah, where he currently resides. Borrowing techniques of abstraction from neo-expressionists, Alba's work aims to evoke an emotional response while commenting on our wildly complex sociopolitical present. As a self-taught artist, he creates work without theoretical constraints or critical expectations of art institutions.
