Paul Augustin Aizpiri
(1919 - 2016)
Paul Augustin Aizpiri was active/lived in France, Japan. Paul Aizpiri is 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.
Public acknowledgment of his talent began in 1940, and progressed from many exhibitions in countries around the world. Since 1963, he has submitted his work to every International Figuration Exhibition as a guest of honor. A likely consequence of growing up in the Basque, he uses vivid Spanish colors that are filled with passion. He is exceptionally well received in Japan.
