Alberto Ballocca

Italy

Alberto Ballocca‘s artistic journey is a tapestry of cultural influences and personal experiences, deeply rooted in his Italian upbringing and enriched by his travels between Turin and Amsterdam. Ballocca’s initiation into the world of art began at the age of 19, marking the start of a path that would see him transition from a regular job to fully dedicating himself to artistic research in 2018. The artist’s background is unique, as he hails from a middle-class family with an artisan father. This upbringing, though not directly related to art, provided him with mechanical and electrotechnical experiences that became spiritual thrusts, transforming technical operations into creative acts. His works are not just expressions of talent but are also reflections of a rich academic background subtly infused with artisanal influences.
