Working across a broad spectrum of media, from painting, to ceramics, performance and moving image, Albert Riera Galceran’s work seeks to push the boundaries of contemporary visual language, while exploring different strategies of display.

This multimedia sensibility blurs distinctions between art, architecture and design, thus creating an array of fluid vocabularies and visual dynamisms. Albert Riera Galceran’s body of work demonstrates a distinct approach to rhythm and repetition, often incorporating bold patterns and vibrant colours in his search/exploration of formalism and abstraction.

Born in Barcelona, Riera Galceran attended university in London, earning a Degree from Central Saint Martins.
