About

An original mixed media oil and wax painting on paper by American contemporary artist Alberto Rey. Alberto Rey is an educator, painter, and filmmaker whose work sometimes borders on sculpture and installation. He was born in Havana, Cuba in 1960, received political asylum through Mexico in 1963, and moved to Miami, Florida in 1965. In 1967, his family relocated to Barnesboro, Pennsylvania. He lived in this small coal-mining town until 1982 when he finished his B.F.A from Indiana University of Pennsylvania after attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. After graduation, Rey lived in Boston, Massachusetts, for a short period before heading to Miami to work on Christo’s Surrounded Islands Project. He then moved to Hollywood, Fla., where he worked at Joan of Arts Studio. He returned north to begin his graduate studies at the University at Buffalo, NY. In 1987, he received his MFA in painting and began traveling throughout Spain, Italy, Morocco, and Mexico. During that same year, his work was introduced into the permanent collection of the Burchfield-Penney Art Center. The following year while teaching in Lincoln-Sudbury High School, the Art Institute of Boston, New England School of Art and Design, and the Museum of Fine Arts, he attended courses at Harvard University in contemporary art and environmental studies. That same year, he had his first solo exhibition in New York City at the Museum of Contemporary Hispanic Art (MoCHA) and was also selected into the permanent collection of El Museo del Barrio in New York City. In 1989, he moved to Dunkirk, New York to accept a teaching position at the State University of New York at Fredonia and married Janeil Strong of Gloucester, Mass. In 1992, his works were selected into the permanent collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Brooklyn Museum, and Bronx Museum of Art. In 1996, while at SUNY Fredonia, Rey accepted a position as the director/curator at the Chautauqua Center of the Visual Arts at Chautauqua Institution. Soon afterwards he was appointed to the New York State Council on the Arts and to the Artist’s Advisory Panel of the New York Foundation for the Arts. In 1998, he returned to Cuba for the first time in 36 years. In 2007, the State University of New York’s Board of Trustees promoted him to SUNY Distinguished Professor for Research and Creative Activity, the state university’s highest rank. Rey's artwork over the past 25 years has been influenced by his Cuban lineage and his attempt to find a sense of identity in a complex contemporary environment.
