This is the gateway to the work that I want to share with you all.
It is the fruit of years of passion for my profession, of creative work and of experimentation with the painting on silk. When in the year 1986 I trained at the School of Arts and Crafts of the Llotja in Barcelona as a textile printer, I did not imagine any horizon. The choice might not be so casual now that after years I relate and take awareness that the profession of the father was the textile and the mother, the craftsman.
At that time, this happens to me deseperceived and I make way for another profession that accompanies my life for more than ten years But the art of painting on silk left me seduced the year 1998 and the training for the workshops of different artists make me discover This vocation.
I soon open my workshop and Showroom Art in silk that since 2003 is located in El Masnou (Barcelona) I Think that craftsmanship is the know-how with your hands, it is a profession, culture and tradition, passion, creativity and sensitivity, is design, perseverance , a medium, an attitude.. And when I let go before a blank silk, I feel that the brush is expressed by the path of creativity and gives meaning to my way of understanding life. And from this feeling, I establish a dialogue with this live fiber that give emotions in shape and color, works all their possibilities and build me with their complicity.
Between Art and fashion It is my way, works to walk and show off any day or at times indicated. I have Also carried out several individual and collective exhibitions. I Am basically colourful and have a special pre-action to work according to my fantasy the floral world of nature and Catalan modernism, on the other hand also inspired by nature. I Love working to recover Catalan cultural and artistic heritage and to put in value, with my personal style, the culture of our country. My products can be found in the main Museums stores of our home. And each work, it is worth saying, is a unique and exclusive piece made taking care of the details and the quality from the beginning to the end.

“In a world of series dislocated production, Anna Albert recovers two essential values in her creative proposal. On the one hand, he vindicates the dignity and pride of the artisan work, understanding it as a job that provides unique and unrepeatable pieces. On the other, he projects a lyrical sense that gives poetic quality to each of his pieces. Hence the silk becomes an essential material, because its delicate texture and its ductility provide the necessary elements to make a unique work and personality. “
Anna has made her profession a way of life. The contact of the brush with silk is your particular meditation. He Works doing what he likes and with passion, perseverance and security. It Seems normal, but it is not, not very frequent. I Don’t know many people who dare to work simply doing what they really like. I admire him a lot. The result is extraordinary, in the truest sense of the word, beyond what is common. Very special works, with a very personal touch, that over the years I have come to recognise from afar. I recognise them and, however, when I think about it, I see the evolution of their style, changes, new textures, experimentation with new themes, new pieces, possibilities: scarves, fans, handbags, earrings, necklaces, flowers, poems. A very long list. The question (she says), is to continue experimenting. And sure soon will surprise us again. Anna is a lover of modernism. Perhaps for this reason, and for the quality of his work, a place has been made in the shops of many of the most visited museums. You can find Them in spaces as diverse as the Museu d’art de Catalunya, the shop of the Casa Batlló, in the Palau de la Música, to name just a few. It has made a space with its own recognition in this sector. I Carry handkerchiefs and other Anna’s pieces for a tremendous pile of years. I think I have more than 20 years. They are a gift of time, dedication and sensitivity. Whenever I wear them I get the best of it. And I notice, it is transmitted everywhere.
Think about the works of Anna Albert, is to think with color, joy and harmony. All garments, whether vanos, scarves, bags, necklaces, are loaded with Life. The great taste when elaborating a piece, and the great knowledge of the technique, result in excellent products that are available to the most demanding customers and the sensitivity necessary to appreciate a hand painted piece with such delicacy and sense of colour and shapes.
Fortunately, I have had the opportunity to follow closely all of Anna’s professional career, almost from its beginnings, and I have been able to observe how her passion for creating is the transversal axis of her life.
Alive in El Masnou for over 15 years and his workshop, also in this town, has been a meeting point to observe its evolution as artisan and artist, and also as a person.
I Have worn and I gleam handkerchiefs, bags, T-shirts and I have also given. And he could say that all his pieces are handmade and, once placed, they are transformed, by its beauty and its colours, in works of art that emanation the passion of the author.
Anna is a polyhedral person and, as such, evokes her art in various facets of fashion and art: Fans, bags, paintings, all sorts of handkerchiefs, jewels, earrings, roses with poetry… Where the taste for beauty and delicacy are the essence and make each work, a unique and unrepeatable piece. At the same time, he has the great sensitivity of incorporating, in some pieces, features of the Catalan artistic heritage, which merges, once again, craftsmanship and art in its pieces.
