About the artist
Alberto Peterle is an Italian artist that try to understand the perspective of the human being during the everyday life and influenced by the native environment. He is a careful observer of the human evolution.He was born in Conegliano but he lives in Cimadolmo, a small village near Treviso. In 2008 he graduated at IT IS E.Fermi Treviso, chemical specialization class. Thanks to his desire of knowledge he decided to start an artistic course at “Academia 88” in 2012, with the teacher G.R. coming from the high artistic school in Treviso. During this period he improved the oil and the acrylic technique on canvas. Following, thanks to his work experience on chemical industry with composite material, he starts an unconventional technique as painting using fiberglass with pigment and minerals, resin, glue and engraving on solid surface. After a first figurative painting period, Alberto moves toward a different style of expression that he calls “muddy”, so the previous chromatic contrast dissolves into natural colors. The previous figure is going to vanish into more informal shape, till to discover single stains. In the 2013 he participated, selected previously from Progetto Giovani Treviso, at artistic show “Prospettive Eccentriche”. At the end of 2013, he won the first prize at the artistic contest for young artists “Which future?”(What next?) with his work “Embryonic memory in a lifeless Hearth”. At the beginning of 2014 he is selected for the international contest “ART PROTAGONIST 2014” organized by Arteficiolinea and his work worth a reporting. After that he is also selected for a local artistic show promoted by stART associations, from Santa Lucia di Piave, namely “Give shape to creativity”.
