ArtTour International Summer Issue presents: Aldo Basili
by Yadira Roman
Italian photographer Aldo Basili has structured a uniquely personal style throughout his career showcasing his exceptional skill. An active artist who delivers consistency in offering works that bring forward many elements creating photographs that are not only masterful regarding realization but also deeply thoughtful and conceptually rich.
His most recent chapter of work focuses on pictures that transcend photography and create a depiction that can be paralleled to painting. This unique characteristic, often described as photo-paintings, has been the focus of his work and exhibits interest for its unique approach. Basili creates broader chromatic fields in his photographs that have a sense of movement and fluidity, transcending the static nature that photography often has. It is an act that vividly enhances colors and creates pictures that appear as impressionist paintings, where light and contrasting tones become the dominant factors of the composition. A technique that offers a new view of urban landscapes and the portrayal of people, as the audience witnesses something entirely unique to their experience.
