Biography

Known for post-expressionist painting and sculpture.Paul Aizpiri has a unique style reminiscent of Edvard Munch. Roughness in his brushstroke and use of bold colors, allow each of his characters and situations come to life with raw emotion. Surely inspired by his Basque background, Aizpiri continually challenges the conventions of modern and contemporary form with his post-Expressionistic style. Paul Aizpiri was born in 1919 in Paris, France and studied painting at “L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts” also in Paris.
