Alberto Piedra Fernández is a pastel artist from Spain. He studied laws and in his artistic beginnings he was self-thought but soon he explored and discovered a field of figurative art and realism in pastels by the hand of internationally renewed artist Abel Marquez from Argentina.
Alberto has received several international awards and recently had the Outstanding Pastel at Bold Brush competition.
He is a founding member of the Pastel Guild of Europe (PGE) and member of Spanish Pastel Society (ASPAS).
