"Born in Soria (Spain) on the 18th of April of 1956, Alberto Pancorbo started to paint from a very early age in his native city. At the age of 18, he transferred to the city of Barcelona with the ultimate goal to dedicate himself only to painting. In 1980, he became an exclusive artist of Sala Gaudi (Barcelona), which exposed his paintings for the first time in the international fair of art of Basiela (Swiss).
He began a period of exhibitions in different cities of Spain and overseas. In many of these exhibitions, he obtained several prizes in various art contests. In 1985, he held his first exhibition in Madrid and was awarded the “Artist Revelation of the Year” by the magazine Correo del Arte de Madrid.
The first publication on the paintings of Pancorbo is published in Barcelona in 1986 and afterward he moved to his new residence in Bogotá (Colombia) where he holds numerous solo and joint exhibitions. These include the United States, Mexico and others countries of the Americas. He successfully participates in numerous fairs of Art and auctions, including world famous Sotheby’s (New York). In 1994, the book “Labyrinths of the Core” by Pancorbo was published, compiling great selections of his paintings. The book is featured in several publications of realistic art.
His works are displayed in different private and public collections throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia. In 1998, Pancorbo moved to Miami where he lives at the present time, a city in which he has had numerous exhibitions for 16 years.
A visitor to the labyrinth of Alberto Pancorbo's imagination is confronted at every turn with symbols both ancient and modern. They allude to human existence, struggle, and frequently, human insensitivity to the world. Caught in the chaos of urban life, traditional values are sometimes lost or forgotten, or rendered meaningless. Pancorbo has mastered a super-realistic style of painting that is capable of transforming the totally imaginary into the totally convincing. In this strange and bewildering world of the labyrinth . . . Pancorbo's world of Fantastic Realism."
