Internationally acclaimed sculptor and painter Gus Albor has made evident in his body of work his inclination to abstract minimalism. The Thirteen Artist Awardee has been known to construct tranquil works which do not overwhelm his audience with impetuous lines and brash colors; rather, he makes use of raw visual elements, incorporating the same school of thought as that of Mondrain and Malevich — both of which, major influences on Albor’s craft due to his fondness for their styles and ideologies.
