My father, Joxe Alberdi was born in 1922. He was a refugee child of 14 who was sent to England  after the bombing of Guernica . He spent the next 30+ years in England. He did very well for himself in England and all of Europe as a sculptor. He was  invited back to Spain  at the end of the Franco era by the minister of  Culture and  spent the next 25 years  of his life continuing  sculpting.

Julio Alberdi

My works are very personal and each has its own identity based upon my deep interests in art, history, and music. 

They are often abstractions from themes that include reclining figures, torsos, and "heroes'.  

I have works, large and small, in wood, stone, steel, and bronze.  Some pieces rotate, others are on fixed bases.  
 

Wood, particularly black walnut, is my favorite medium due to its density, color, grain and soul.
