Paul Aizpiri, Born in Paris in 1919 with a Basque and Italian upbringing, Aizpiri studied painting at L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He started exhibiting in 1943, his talent appreciated and bolstered by public acceptance, the progress enabled him to have many exhibitions held in various countries around the world. 1956 was the year his path as an artist was altered, that year he met with Foujita, Soutine, Van Dongen, Utillo and Picasso, who greatly influenced his style and work.
Aizpiri’s passion for nature and families are evident in his artworks. The bold brushstrokes and the bright colored palette he brandishes in his vibrant figurative paintings are symbolic of his joy and satisfaction in life. His recent works are painted poetry filled with a glow of love with such motifs as children, bicycles, airplanes, birds, fish and the sun, flying over the skies of Paris, Saint Tropez and Venice.
