Original Artwork by Louis Aiello
Aiello's career as an artist and painter began as a freelance renderer while attending Parsons School of Design in New York City. When not studying, he could be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with a sketch pad, pen and ink, and watercolors channeling the masters of impressionism, realism, and abstract expressionism, finding his own voice and style somewhere in the mix.
Aiello works with oils, acrylics, and the occasional watercolor. He prefers working in oils, which allow him to explore the relationship between texture, color, and light.
Artist Louis Aiello is now known for his original paintings of landscapes and contemporary works.
