Alberto García Alix is one of the best portraitists, photographers and artists of the Spanish and international art scene. With a raw and elegant style, García Alix has built his career around his life experiences. His portraits marked a generation, that of the Movida madrileña. Feeding his creativity of excesses and fears, his photographs are a journey through an era, a history and a life, his life.
He has received the National Photography Award (1999), the PHotoESPAÑA Award (2012), and the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts (2019), among other awards obtained throughout his career.
This year he has been distinguished with the Enaire Foundation Photography Career Award 2022, which leads to the organization of an exhibition that opened on June 1 at the Royal Botanical Garden in Madrid and will be open to the public until August 28, as part of the international photography festival PHotoESPAÑA.
