José Luis Aldana
(1952, Barinas, Venezuela) is a painter whose dense canvases demonstrate his exploration of countless motifs taken from everyday life, which are packed into his large scale paintings.
Hiding Place, Aldana’s latest body of work, evokes the playful moments of childhood, where objects like rocking horses and juggling balls are arranged onto colorful and complex backdrops. Although the backgrounds Aldana paints are fit to burst, his careful use of bold and complimentary colors distinguishes the multiple elements in the frame.
Aldana’s training as an artist began at the Martín Tovar y Tovar Fine Art School in Barqusimeto, in Venezuela, after which he moved to France for a period of ten years, where he took drawing and painting courses at the Toulouse Cultural Center.
Aldana has an extensive list of solo and group exhibitions in Venezuela, France, Colombia, United States, and his work has been acquired by numerous private and public art collections in Venezuela.
