Altin Rizi uses traditional Roman setting techniques to create his work. He views mosaics as a form of living art.
He has been creating and designing art professionally in a variety of mediums since 1996, following his education in painting and graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts in Tirana,the capital and largest city of the Republic of Albania.
Altin now has a studio in Berkeley, and if you fall in love with his art and want to learn the traditional methods that he uses, you can take classes from him! He offers classes to small groups of people so that each person will receive lots of individual attention.

Although mosaic is his preferred medium, Altin has worked in many fields of art and design, including both two and three dimensional work. His work with mosaic art and painting has spanned European venues, including Milan and Paris.
For Altin, mosaic is about the space, the environment, and the ability of living it in everyday life.
He enjoys enhancing architectural elements.
Altin is sensitive to the comfort, beauty, and freshness that mosaic can offer to transform so many different kinds of spaces.
More recently, he has taken on stagecraft and sculptural design projects for parks, hotels, and theaters. He is, indeed, a man of many talents!
