Born in Turin in 1996, Alberto Selvestrel currently lives and works in San Damiano d’Asti. At the age of 17, Selvestrel approached photography with a focus on landscape. Two years later he deepened his self-taught research and focused on the anthropic landscape and its modifications, starting to develop his personal style characterised by geometric and minimal compositions.
Selvestrel’s research is aimed at condensing the maximum of his conceptual expression into the minimum of form. His photographs establish a link between the reality of the landscape and that imagined by him. Exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, Selvestrel creates work in which one can find the appeal of clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimalist art.
Working from this perspective, Selvestrel thus manages to question the cohesive relationship between the dystonic vision of the world and the striking architectural geometries, transporting the viewer into a space where the work of man and nature can coexist without tension. The result is a splendid blend of synthesis and luminosity that invites the viewer to lose himself and at the same time seek himself in these lifeless yet so peaceful and poetic landscapes.
Since 2017, Alberto Selvestrel has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Europe and participated in international contemporary art fairs with ArtNoble gallery. In 2019, FujiFilm selects Alberto Selvestrel as the only Italian testimonial for the launch of the X-Pro3 camera. Moreover, in 2020, Automobili Lamborghini chooses him for the project With Italy for Italy for the revaluation of the Italian territory post Covid-19. In 2020, Alberto held his first solo exhibition in Milano, Dialogues, ArtNoble gallery and in 2021 was selected to participate in the project Una Boccata d’Arte, promoted by Fondazione Elpis in collaboration with Galleria Continua. In the spring of 2022, Alberto Selvestrel will inaugurate his second personal show at ArtNoble gallery in Milano.
