Alberto Murillo is native to Madrid, Spain but has resided in many cities and countries around the world. He now lives and works in Tampa. A self-taught artist, Murillo has lived a creative life. Murillo’s work draws influence from abstract expressionism. This influence is demonstrated in his use of concentrated areas of vibrant colors that are poured onto the panel in a blocking effect. Murillo’s compositions are inspired by the architecture and moods of Spain and Latin America. Murillo’s abstract fields of color evoke the memory of places from calming seascapes to the vibrant maelstrom of cities.
His artwork has been exhibited and celebrated across the United States, as well as Europe. Alberto’s art is featured in a number of selected private and public collections including: “the Givenchy Family Collection, Coca-Cola, Colliers International, Holland & Knight, Wells Fargo and Bristol Myers.” - Squibb
