Albert Chamillard was born in Attleboro, Massachusetts in 1971. He moved to Tucson in 1994 and received his BFA in studio arts from the University of Arizona in 2003. While a student at the UA, he helped establish the student-run Carbonbase Studio and Gallery. Post-graduation, he continued to work as an art handler and picture framer before co-founding Atlas Fine Art Services in 2011, and currently works as a preparator at the University of Arizona Museum of Art.
Albert’s work is primarily small scale drawings that are comprised of layers of cross-hatched marks which create textile-like surfaces, and deal with concepts of memory, family, the natural world and ways language affects and interferes with our perceptions of our world. Albert Chamillard has exhibited work nationally and locally at Etherton, Paradigm and Pulp Galleries.
