On 15 March the Saatchi Gallery will open Exit from Aden, an exhibition of new works by the artist ALO, in the Prints & Originals Gallery.
Exit from Aden presents new paintings by ALO created on canvas, cardboard and paper. These works are portraits of real people observed in the street and mythical figures and people that the artist has encountered in life or in the media. Executed in his distinctive style, which ALO describes as urban expressionism, these works constitute an impressive body of work focussing upon the human figure in contemporary society.
ALO was born in Italy and relocated to London in 2011. He has since established himself as a distinctive and highly regarded artist. His studio work has become highly collectable and his street art work well publicised. Exit from Aden is the second solo exhibition of works at the Saatchi Gallery following the highly successful exhibition Hail to the Loser in 2014.
