Ocean Galleries is delighted to welcome Aldo Luongo with his newest collection of paintings.
Born in Argentina of Italian heritage, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires. He first received accolades in the 1970s with multiple reproductions of his black and white drawings that put him on the map as a major international artist. Since that time, he has reigned at the top of the contemporary art world.
From his acrylics to his fine art prints, all of Aldo Luongo’s pieces embody the same sense of fluidity and intensity, the result of a true artist engaged in the passionate process of creation. Central to all of Luongo’s paintings is the balance between memory and hope, sorrow and humor, freedom and control.
The exhibition includes a variety of artwork by Luongo, ranging from original mixed media on boards, enhanced giclées on canvas, as well as varying sizes of original paintings on canvas. The artwork for the exhibition focuses on Aldo’s love of the ocean and coastal surroundings he has visited. While several seaside pieces celebrate the romanticism and beauty of women, others capture the innocence and charm of children and families. The artist also revisits his much beloved character, “The Hawk.”
The exhibition is FREE and open to the public with all artwork available for acquisition. For more information, call 609-368-7777 or visit www.oceangalleries.com
