“Albert Schweitzer is a visionary artist who lives and works in Baltimore Maryland. Although classically trained his paintings are imbued with the naive, raw simplicity and energy that one would associate with outsider art. As a student Albert studied with Grace Hartigan. This association with Grace Hartigan has created a lasting influence on his work.” From a review by Ruth Robertson
Born in Wisconsin in 1967, Albert now lives in Baltimore, Maryland. He received his B.F.A. degree in painting from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 1990. He received an M.F.A. in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He studied under Grace Hartigan at the Hoffberger School of Painting, graduating in 1995.
Albert exhibits frequently in New York, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. His work is in many private and permanent collections.
