Albert Shena was born in Albania. Since 1991, he has been working in Athens. From his very first work, he has showcased his interest in developing drawings with an illustrative character, while, since 2000, his work has broadened its scope, often taking the form of structured visual art with the use of various media (painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, and more), depending, every time, on his expressive needs. Consequently, his work guides the viewer's gaze from daily life to the revelation of a deeper meaning, attempting to create a form of painting that distances itself from external stimuli and visible images, and focused on absolute and pure shapes that are inspired by motives that are internal to the soul.
The artist himself proceeds to an in-depth spiritual search, seeking the truth hidden within things. He creates his work based on archetypal shapes, which lead thoughts to the basic structures of nature and are capable of speaking for their content with the strength of their drawing and the texture of their materials.

Alberto Shena attempts to examine the “box” of human conscience itself, by creating a type of painting that distances itself from external stimuli and visible images and, instead, invests in absolute and pure shapes. He continues with an in-depth spiritual search. He creates his work based on archetypal shapes, which put one in mind of the basic structures of nature and are capable of speaking for their content through the strength of their drawing and the structure of their materials.
Contemporary art investigates the great questions of science, reproduces and shapes worlds— whether real or imaginary—promotes values, and proposes new ways of thinking. In this workshop, participants attempted to tackle the theme of water as a symbol of life.
