Enjoy the non-conformist, hyper realism and neo-surrealism work of Alberto Cruz. Inspired by Dali's strange sense of humor, Alberto channeled his love of color and composition into a language of his own. As an artist, Alberto Cruz' evolution was typical of a painter building on the best from different stages of his work. Cruz began painting landscapes in a unique type of pointillism which veered from the rules of divisionism followed by pointillists like Seurat and de la Croix. His style soon won him acclaim in Venezuela from 1965-1978. In his pursuit of innovation, Cruz moved on from Nature scenes to a crude hyper realism depicting the truth of the poorer surroundings where he lived. As photography took over the themes he was depicting through paint and canvas, Cruz pursued a more creative avenue of expression. Inspired by the work of Salvador Dali, Alberto channeled his love for color, volumes and texture, into neo-surrealism. See his entire collection at the Sweet Art Gallery.
