The Moravian born artist immigrated to the United States at the age of 22 where he studied and worked in Pennsylvania, New York and Chicago, where he was head of the sculpture department at the Art Institute of Chicago for nearly 30 years. At the age of 71 he married for the first time and moved to Winter Park Florida to retire. Even after suffering a stroke and being confined to a wheelchair, Albin continued to paint, draw, sculpt and carve until he died at the age of 86.
