From the 1970s the artist developed a new personal language through the Politipi, characterised by their geometric forms and shimmering colours, to which in the 1990s he juxtaposed painterly inserts with figurative allusions. In about 2000 he began the series Assemblages, in which Biasi juxtaposes and joins various canvases which are then “assembled” together and find a balance in their own “breaking point”. These three-dimensional works in a dialogue with space, with an apparent rigidity of geometric forms and of a uniform colour, transmit, however, a sensation of irregularity given by the blades that violently enter to become a part of the work, interrupting the homogeneity of the painted part. Alberto Biasi’s art research continues after almost sixty years thanks to the redevelopment of formal solutions that continue to offer new possible readings of his art, a visual art that transmits awareness and knowledge through the eyes.
He has taken part in numerous group shows and important national and international exhibitions, such as the XXII and XLII Venice Biennales, the X, XI, and XIV Rome Quadrennials, the XI Sao Paolo Biennale, and various well-known graphic biennales, and has received such awards as that of the World Print Competition ’73 of the California College of Arts and Crafts in collaboration with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Tributes have been made to his artistic activity by Italian and foreign private galleries and public museums, such as the Muzeum Sztuki, Łódź, Il Museo Civico agli Eremitani, the Hermitage, Saint Petersburg, theMuseu Diocesà, Barcellona, Palazzo Ducale, Urbino, Palazzo dei Priori, Perugia, MACBA in Buenos Aires, MAC, Santiago in Chile, MARCA, Catanzaro, Palazzo Reale, Genoa, and Palazzo Pretorio, Cittadella. The artworks by Alberto Biasi are part of the most beautiful and authoritative Italian and foreign public and museum collections, among which the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Galleria Nazionale, Rome, theHermitage, Saint Petersburgthe Centre Pompidou , Paris, and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, as well as many other prestigious exhibition venues.
