Alberto Borea received his BA in painting from Corriente Alterna School of Fine Arts in Lima, Peru, and his work is principally characterized by the continuous displacement and incorporation of diverse media and materials. This openness towards the media assists him in defining the development of an artistic proposal, where the object's time and history take a fundamental importance within the plastic discourse.
For the most part Borea's work concentrates on the difficult and dramatic relationship between cultures and histories; the coexistence of past and present within an approach that can go from the particular to the general and vice versa, he weaves his life experience with those spaces where this experience was developed.
The artist has participated in different programs and artist residencies, and his works have been exhibited in several solo and group shows in Latin America, Europe and the U.S.
