Alberto Montano’s artistic production comes up from a clear conscience on the constant re-creation of artwork through the spectator. The artist knows that his work will travel through the glance of who contemplates it, going through their mind, affected by their life story through countless universes that dwell in the lifes of those who recieve it. Perfectly aware of his historical and social context, Alberto Montano makes his way into the spectators appreciation to move consciences, question perceptions and beliefs, probably seeking to awaken ideas and discovering broader horizons.
