In the world of art, some figures stand out not only for their remarkable talent but for the potent messages their work conveys. Among these is Tina Alberni, a mixed media artist based in North Carolina, USA, whose art is a cry for understanding and a reflection of the contemporary world.
Alberni’s work, driven by a deep-rooted sense of urgency, confronts the challenges brought about by anthropocentrism, climate change, technology, and harmful human behavior. It resonates with the disquiet and turbulence of our times, seeking to shed light on the fragmented and displaced lives resulting from natural disasters, societal injustices, and conflicts.
Armed with a Bachelor’s degree in art education, Alberni has spent over three decades perfecting her craft and spreading her poignant message. Throughout this time, her art has graced over 100 solo, group, and virtual shows across the globe. She has been recognized with numerous awards and grants, reflecting the resonance and impact of her work.
A physical painter at heart, Alberni has ventured into the digital world, exploring the exciting opportunities presented by web 3/metaverse. Her digital artwork has been displayed on multiple digital billboards in cosmopolitan cities such as Miami, Charlotte, Barcelona, and Austria. She also showcased her work at The Foundry Gallery in Dubai, UAE, and with The ArtBox project in Switzerland during Art Basel.
Her work is not only admired but also widely sought after. Alberni’s pieces have been published in print and online, finding a home in private and public collections.
Despite her impressive accomplishments, Alberni shows no signs of slowing down. She’s working on several solo physical exhibition projects slated for 2024 while also pursuing exciting opportunities in the web3 space, including exhibiting in New York and Los Angeles.
Alberni’s journey into the world of art began at the tender age of five on a South American farm. Watching her artist mother bring a blank canvas to life ignited her passion for painting. Today, after 30+ years as an art professional, she draws inspiration from life itself and sees her two-decade-long experience teaching art as a driving force that fuels her creativity.
In the ever-changing art landscape, Alberni sees the integration of physical studio work with digital technology as the way forward. The fusion of her hand-painted work with innovative tech has taken her art to a whole new level, triggering a wave of fresh ideas.
A champion of digital collectibles/NFTs, Alberni believes they’re revolutionizing how we perceive and create art. Through tokenization, artists can directly connect with their audience, bypassing traditional intermediaries like galleries or auction houses. She also points out how digital collectibles/NFTs enable the tokenization of physical artworks and the potential of earning royalties in secondary markets, which is a game-changer for artists.
