Passion For Art

>>>>>Aldo Balding

Handsome men and elegant women are often the center of Aldo’s paintings. The subjects are always impeccably dressed, often in glamorous locations and depict the complexities of human emotions and relationships.

Aldo’s ability to render the human form from any angle was nurtured and perfected from his early career as a storyboard illustrator in the advertising industry. The agency world also taught him about the structure of narrative, translating a complex message within elegant compositions and expressive gestures.

The solitary male, hands in pockets, deep in thought; the businessmen in front of the Trevi Fountain; the woman gazing out of the window, lost in thought: there are stories in these paintings.

Aldo doesn’t necessarily show the faces of his subjects to communicate the drama, as the artist himself says “When a person is face-on, it’s a portrait, and the mystique is gone… but you can suggest so much in a gesture, in the way someone stands.”

Aldo’s uncanny ability to suggest more than we can see has made him a recognized and outstanding figurative and portrait artist, whose work is collected worldwide.

British born Aldo Balding now lives and works in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France.
