Alberto was born in 1960. He was raised in Mexico City.
Alberto Saucedo began his career as self-taught artist who demonstrated at a
young age a remarkable talent and passion for art that eventually at seventeen
years of age led him to formal studies at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de
México and later on enrolled at San Diego City College. There he focused on
Commercial Art and Interior Design. It was there, where he evolved his unique
personal style. It was also at this time that he discovered the work of Master
sculptor Francisco Zuñiga and studied sculpture with him. Sculpture subsequently
became a major part of Saucedo’s work, and achieved his first real recognition
in his field. Saucedo’s training has included a generous study of art
history, where he incorporates his sensuous, spiritual and classical techniques,
transforming it into a style that becomes evident in his work.
