Artist Spotlight - Aldo Luongo

Espresso & Grappa by Aldo Luongo

I chose to spotlight artist Aldo Luongo this week because I have long admired his painting Espresso & Grappa, which is displayed at Il Pastaio restaurant in Beverly Hills.  The warm smile on the man's face and his charisma are both striking and welcoming at the same time.

Luongo is an internationally accomplished artist of Italian Heritage, originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina.  His body of work is prolific and he has been the commissioned artist of many of the Olympics since 1988.  The main figure in his paintings throughout the years is The Hawk, the character for whom he is most recognized.
