Alberto Ardid

“Visual and plastic artist. He works on pieces with no disciplinary affiliation that can be situated between perception and matter, confronting very different elements with each other and which in turn can represent opposing ideas. To do this, he usually uses construction materials and visual references which, when mixed and decontextualised, generate many meanings and great contrasts, conclusions to history and mass culture, as well as to contemporary art itself.

He has shown his work in numerous group exhibitions in Spain and abroad and has had two solo exhibitions: GRAVIDADE (Espaxo Cubo, Vigo 2019) and 00:00 (Apo’strophe, Vigo 2020). He has won the Premio Plástika 2019, the Premio Adquisición Isaac Díaz Pardo of the A Coruña Council in 2021, the second prize in the XVI Certamen de Artes Plásticas of the Ourense Council and the Education Grant Prize of Morrazo’s Bienal de Arte 2022.

Graduate in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona (2010), with a Master’s Degree in Teaching, specialising in Drawing, from the University of Vigo (2013). He currently lives and works in Vigo, combining his artistic work with teaching art at a special education school (Fundación Igual Arte), graphic design, book layout and audiovisual experimentation.”
