about Alberto Udaeta
The sculptor Alberto Udaeta studies at the Llotja School of Applied Arts in Barcelona. Between 1970 and 1972, the artist carried out an internship in Industrial Engineering at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton and Design at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada. After a period of intense activity as a freelance industrial designer in Europe and North America, he closed his studio in Barcelona in 1982 and moved to Sant Feliu de Guíxols in El Baix Empordà in Girona, where he rehabilitated an old cork stopper factory as a workshop, and is dedicated exclusively to sculpture.
His art works are based on experience and history; they are intense, essential and understandable. He uses traditional Chinese techniques, a very satisfactory craft for the artist since he takes as long as necessary to make the pieces.
