ALEO is a painter and muralist based in Denver. He likes to paint his large scale murals freehand, using spray paint instead of brushes. Since 2013 ALEO’s work has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout Colorado, California, Washington, and New Mexico. Keep an eye out for his upcoming shows at Threyda and Mirus this summer.
“I enjoy creating visual diagrams with abstract forms,” says Aleo. “By mixing training with intuition, I can create that which could not exist along with that which appears to be from this world. Painting is the ebb and flow of form. Pushing the darks farther back and pulling the lights forward, while always refining. Painting is both chaotic and extremely precise, it all depends on where the painting is in progress. Color, technique, and experimentation are what I love about the painting process.”
