In his “space and time” Aldo Luongo creates powerful and spirited work that evokes true emotion. Whether he is portraying a romantic enclave, a frenzied sporting event, or a richly textured landscape, central to all of Luongo’s paintings is the balance between memory and hope, sorrow and humor, freedom and control. Luongo’s pieces embody the result of a true artist engaged in a passionate processes of creation.
Born to Italian parents, Aldo was raised in Argentina. While growing up he was exposed to various forms of the arts including painting and playing the piano. All the while his true love as a young man was playing soccer. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, Aldo played professional soccer in New York for the Cosmos. Aldo Luongo’s vibrant impressionistic style shows early influence by such masters as Monet, Van Gogh, and Toulouse-Lautrec. Flatteringly reviewed as a “Post-Impressionist” by The New York Times, Luongo appreciated the compliment, as many of his favorite painters were Impressionists.
Aldo Luongo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, of Italian heritage. Since as far back as he can remember, Luongo had two great passions: art and soccer. Shortly after his graduation from the Academy of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, Luongo came to the U.S. to play professional soccer for the New York Generals. After his athletic career was cut short due to an injury, he arrived in New York City with a dream to pursue his artwork full time.
Aldo Luongo has continued his reign at the top of the contemporary art world for almost four decades – a distinction that puts him in a class of his own. He has received numerous awards and honors, including being named a 3-time official Olympic Artist (Summer 1988, Summer 1996, and Winter 2002); an official World Cup Artist (1998); an official U.S. Women’s World Cup Artist (1999); and the 1999 Sports Artist of the Year (U.S. Sports Museum). He also has twice been chosen to paint eggs for the White House Easter Egg Hunt which now reside in the Smithsonian Institute.
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. His bold, impressionistic style has often been referred to as “Romance on Canvas”. Central to all of Luongo's paintings is the balance between memory and hope, sorrow and humor, freedom and control. These dynamics are clearly apparent in his figurative works, especially those portraying The Hawk, an archetypal character based on the memory of his father and the discovery of his future self. Aldo Luongo's artwork captures more than just the viewers gaze… it echoes the experiences of life lived to the fullest.
