Born under the Italian heavens where the words are music where gestures are theatre and where colours are always lively, Aldo, graduate of the Fine arts School of Fine Arts) of Naples settles down in Paris in 1961.
Place du Tertre, he outlines, profiles the streets, the Seine, the bridges, and Montmartre of course... In parallel, he works on the paint itself and gives relief to its abstract expression. He is already a personality; the "wop".
Cruciform markings and sensual colours, almost calligraphic signs and line barbed wires defend him from the hostile world.
The life in Paris agrees very well with its senior form to the Italian, but it is the very favourite, he takes refuge with Normandy.
Aldo Paolucci's paintings take then sound flies away towards a long journey between war and peace, between fights and celebrations of the presents of the life.
He chooses, selects his exhibitions, the destinations of his works: the United States, Germany, and Japan... In France it is the FNAC or the biggest institutions which buy. He refuses to sell in auction and prefers the isolation, snuggled up in the heart of the bocage.
Sometimes shy, sometimes dirty his nudes say a lot about him on his deep sensibility. His sculpture is soft, transparent, and unique. His paint bursts, sprung such a delivery.
Aldo puts it all his body, he sends the best and that is obvious.
You at good distance should stop and look.
Giulia Paolucci, artist’s daughter.
