For his work, he has received a MUSAC Artistic Creation Grant, a Pilar Juncosa & Sotheby’s Award from the Miró Mallorca Foundation, a Villalar Foundation grant, a Community of Madrid Visual Art Grant, a VEGAP Grant for Visual Creation, and the Roberto Villagraz grant from EFTI.
Carlos Alba is a visual artist working mainly with photography, video, painting and installation. His work focuses on human and non-human relationships in the modern world, especially subjects related to his life.

His tools are objects and archives that help him find the final visual artwork he wants to make.
