Tina Alberni is a full-time artist. She earned a BS in art education with a concentration in printmaking.
She defines herself as a semiabstract artist. Her work aesthetic blends expressive and graphic elements across all bodies of work. Much like her years in printmaking, her process is intentional and rational, but her creative journey flows through intuition.
Alberni grew up between Puerto Rico, Colombia and Miami. Her bi-cultural, vibrant heritage and upbringing weave throughout the fabric of her art, bringing layers together in a variety of techniques and materials which build her framework, and geometry, bold colors, and symbolism fuse to complete a narrative.

Her work investigates and comments on the relationship between humans, nature, technology and the rest of our planet which seem to exist in perpetual chaos within the environmental, political, economic, and sociocultural framework. Her work is driven by current events, human consumption, animal habitats, technological advances and troubling dichotomies.
For the past 3 decades, she has worn several creative hats as a former gallery co-owner, art administrator, middle and high school educator, and web and graphic designer. She has also served on multiple boards and jury panels and is the recipient of multiple grants and awards. Her art has been featured, sold across the U.S and abroad, and been published in both print and online.
Within the last few years, she served on a few art jury panels, received an artist support grant, became a second time recipient of a 150K value award by ArtPop Charlotte featuring her work on billboards and digital media throughout the region, was featured for a second time on the front cover of a prestigious university literary magazine, was invited to exhibit her work in a few long-term shows, one of them being at the Fedex Global Education Center at UNC Chapel Hill and most recently, was commissioned by Atrium Health to create a site specific piece.
She practices her art full-time out of her North Carolina art studio, and recently has started developing NFTs Here.
She is open to commission work, corporate partnerships and alternative space exhibits
