Alberto Fusco is a London-based Italian paper artist, internationally sold and exhibited. Born in Naples, Fusco has been creative since a young age, leading him to study art and become the assistant of prominent contemporary Neapolitan artists. In 1994 he moved to London to pursue his passion for figurative art, in particular sculpture, and to expand his artistic study and practice, earning a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Roehampton University with a specialization in the art of mosaics.
At present, Fusco’s practice revolves around giving life to artworks by utilizing recycled paper magazines that would otherwise be discarded and thrown away. This is particularly relevant in a society that is only now coming to terms with sustainability of the planet. His artworks are created by meticulously folding and manipulating recycled magazine papers, transforming them into textural geometrical forms, which ultimately develop into sculptural pieces of their own right.
