Alberto Biasi

Born in 1937 in Padua, Italy. Lives and works in Padua.

Biasi is considered a pioneer in the broader field of Kinetic Art. A founder of the groundbreaking Gruppo N during the 1960s, Biasi is one of the first artists to experiment with the optical illusion of movement that can be created through the mix of traditional and non-traditional art materials in works that border between two and three dimensional. Explosions of vibrant colour and astounding geometric precision, Biasi’s work explores optical effects through the use of materials like PVC strips and painted designs. Through this technique, Alberto Biasi invites his viewer to challenge their sense of perception – a stationary work of art seems to vibrate by the very act of viewing. The beauty of Biasi’s work rests in this temporality of experience, in the works’ moment-to-moment dynamism. This dynamic quality is further emphasised by the strong angularity often found in these pieces. Biasi has participated in numerous important exhibitions over the course of a long and popular career, including Venice Biennial, Quadrennial of Rome, and Sao Paulo Biennial. His work can be found in the collections of Modern Art Museum in New York, Galleria Nazionale in Rome, and the Hermitage in Saint Petesburg, among others.
