The Saatchi Gallery Presents ALO –HAIL TO THE LOSER, 7/29-8/18
A self-taught artist born in Italy, ALO focuses on the human figure and portraiture. His works first gained recognition when they appeared on the streets of Perugia, Rome and Milan.
Over the past two years his works have been seen on the streets of East London and pay tribute to the people he observes in and around the area.
The works are informed and influenced by the fascination that ALO has for the German Expressionist movement, the raw simplicity and directness of art from Africa and the energy of Punk.
This exhibition will include over 40 works of art, many of which have been created over recent months. A limited edition print, the first by the artist, will be launched during the exhibition. All exhibited works are for sale.
