Tina Alberni defines herself as a semiabstract artist.
Her bi-cultural heritage and upbringing weave throughout the fabric of her art. She brings layers together in a variety of techniques and materials to build her framework, and geometry, color, and symbolism fuse to complete a narrative often rooted in the themes of hope and survival. Acts of repetition and patterning are continuous during her creative journey. They help keep her centered and get some sense of calm amidst current world chaos. Her work aesthetic blends expressive and graphic elements across all bodies of work and often requires verbal commentary to read legibly.
A responsibility she feels deeply about? Bringing awareness and igniting conversation and improved behaviors about the systemic impact of technology and caustic human behavior on all life on the planet.
Creating is like oxygen. Art gives her wings to explore the world and her place in it.
Much like her years in printmaking, her process is intentional and rational, but her creative journey flows through intuition. The constant push and pull between instinct and logic provides endless discoveries and fun surprises which eventually culminate into a final, unanticipated creation that helps her meet her goal to create awareness, breathing hope while keeping it real, often giving voice to life that can’t speak.
Alberni earned a BS in art education with a concentration in printmaking. She has been practicing as an art educator, art administrator, graphic designer, and artist since the mid-‘90s and has fully dedicated to her art for a few decades.
Alberni has been the featured artist in many venues. Her latest award was receiving a 150K value billboard award by ArtPop Charlotte. They featured her work on billboards and digital media throughout the region. She has been the recipient of multiple grants and awards and has exhibited and sold to collectors on several continents.
*Alberni is open to Commission work, corporate partnerships and alternative space exhibits.
