Note biografiche


family portrait


Albert Edwin Flury was born in 1974 of an Italian mother and Swiss/English father in Busto Arsizio, Italy. From his tender years he showed an outstanding artistic gift.

At the age of six his capacity was recognized by him receiving a certificate of “Benemerenza” from the cultural department of the Region of Lombardy. His love for art was already evident when at the age of four he would ask his mother to enter antique churches to see the masterpieces on view. It was, perhaps, these masterpieces that have left an indelible mark in Albert’s spirit in which art expressed its cultural roots of the past. In particular, a visit to the palace of Versailles at the age of eight had an important influence in determing his choice of style, in which his works reflect a sort of an eighteen- century atmosphere.

Self-taught for several years using techniques ranging from water-colour to tempera, he decided at the age of fourteen to enrol at the “Liceo Artistico di Busto Arsizio” where he obtained his Art diploma in 1992.
From 1993 the production of the young artist began in earnest; he entered into a prestigious artistic cultural association of Milan, where he had the opportunity to exhibit his works, obtaining commissions in the sector of Portraits both in Italy and England.

In April 1994 he executed an affresco on the front face of the palace “Mazzucchelli” representing the Madonna, Jesus and S.Giovannino (Madonna del Roseto, mt. 2,10x3,20) This work was published in the weekly “Città Oggi” on 10.05.1994.
In 1995, while serving his military service in the Navy, he painted various portraits in oil, including the “Portrait of Sergeant Luigi Mancuso”. In 1996 he produced a Thrompe-l’oeil on the walls of the main ball-room of the Daily Rose of Legnano (Italy), work executed in tempra (dimensions 9,5x5,20 m), representing a prospective view containing architectural elements, statues and gardens.
