Academically trained as an architect, Albury’s work references his extensive training and skill in technical drawing. His meticulous pen-and-ink works depict familiar sights to any New Yorker, water towers and high-rise buildings, but Albury’s attentive gaze imbues these everyday sights with elegant detail. Albury’s work, on his vast scale suits his subject matter beautifully and effortlessly conveys a city teaming with life in all its intricate, dizzying detail.  Albury recently exhibited in a joint show at ROOQ Fine Art in NoHo in New York City, and is currently finalizing his first ever solo exhibition of drawings, prints, and woodblocks, to be showcased at Primary Wave in the Union Square Neighborhood of Manhattan.  He is also preparing further work for an upcoming exhibition in Dallas for 2016.
