Biography  
Augusto Albor


Biography from Leon Gallery

Internationally renowned painter and sculptor Augusto Albor has come to be known as one of the premiere abstractionists in the Philippine Art scene. An abstract Minimalist, Albor’s aesthetic features a unique use of space. Although Minimalistic in his approach, his use of paint in his works is all but sparse. 

Albor’s artistic leanings take from that of Suprematism and Neoplasticism, but with much less rigidness in execution.  Such, overall, has allowed Albor’s art to speak more freely — welcoming his audience to partake in his alluring brew of expression and restrain.

In one sense this is a great strength; Albor’s paintings are secure from incorporation in any movement or tendency towards "design". Albor freed painting from all imitative or conventional contexts. The viewer becomes sensitive to its intrinsic qualities and unencumbered with preconceptions. Of particular interest is the textural treatment in some areas of the work in which the gray is superimposed with rust like incrustations that connote decay and the irreversible action of time and the elements. It also results in an increased visual “feeling” of rawness.
