My investigation aims to create a sensory stimulus that I expect to enter the viewers’ brain so they process the information and automatically generate a particular perception. My intention is to generate a three dimensional spatial perception with structured works created in only two dimensions. However, my main goal is not only to achieve this effect, but also to generate a unique experience in the viewers when they confront my work. This experience occurs at the time that in the viewers' brain is generated dialectic or confronts of arguments of visual perception and physical reality. I want my work to invite viewers to approach, analyze, understand, and question their reasoning. If this turns out to be surprising for the viewers, then it will have meant a pleasant experience beyond a possible and additional aesthetic pleasure.
Alberto Jose Sanchez was born in 1979 in Caracas, Venezuela, where he grew up. While showing much interest in painting and other plastic arts since an early age, he attended the Metropolitan University of Venezuela and graduated with a degree in Business in 2003. During his studies, he maintained his contact with the artistic world.  His passion for art led him years later to study contemporary art at the Metropolitan University.
As a young artist, Alberto started experimenting with different techniques and materials. He was particularly interested in kinetic art; he explored this art form extensively. The main source of inspiration for this period was Maestro Carlos Cruz-Diez, whom Alberto would meet and visit at his Art Studio in Paris, France many years later.
In 2007 Alberto began to develop pieces with an optical abstract-geometric character; this is the moment in his artistic development when he found his real passion. His pieces are based on bi-dimensional geometric figures, which suggest and generate tri-dimensional formations as a result of the use of contrasting colors and shadows.

He has exhibited his work in different galleries in the United States, Europe and South America. Additionally, his work has been exhibited in important Art Fairs worldwide. His most outstanding works are the interventions of public spaces through artistic murals and installation, achieving that some of these art pieces become iconic places of their respective City.
In 2017, Alberto received the Second Place Award from the Madi Dallas Museum at the Biennial of Geometric Art.
