Alberto La Tassa
Alberto La Tassa’s Signature Style
Alberto graduated with honours from the prestigious Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice, where he currently lives and works. His surrealist oeuvre is an arousing amalgamation of Byzantine, Venetian and Baroque styles. Paintings such as My Body Hurts ooze with memory, desire and fantasy, heightened with a sumptuous palette of royal reds and glorious golds. Many of his works feature a cast of roving and exorbitant characters; empresses, mythical men and oneiric nudes peer out from the canvas. His mixed-media works, charged with passion, are at once refined and undeniably volatile.
