Alberto Marcos Bursztyn

Alberto is a Brooklyn-based visual artist who works in a variety of media. His installations and assemblages explore the aesthetic possibilities and psychological meanings of reconfigured old and discarded objects. Although he holds no formal art degrees, Alberto studied and apprenticed with prominent artists including Elizabeth Murray, Patricia Cronin, Juana Valdez, Stephen Keltner, Kathleen Gilrain, and others who have taught in the MFA in Visual Arts program at Brooklyn College. His work has been shown widely; it is represented in the permanent collection of the B.U. Kashkin Museum in Ekaterinburg, Russia and in various private collections.
