Aldo Galli

Aldo Galli was born in 1966 in Lombardy, Italy.

After graduating in 1992 in Agricultural Sciences at the University of Milan, he worked several years in the plant production sector.

Looking for a life change, he moved to Hampshire, England in 2001, after six month travelling experience down under.

Always fascinated with painting and nature, he joined professional training courses in Landscape, Floral and Wildlife. This experience gave him a new insight into oil painting and the opportunity to develop his own style, combining traditional oil painting with wet on wet technique.

The discovery of the Watership Down world on his doorstep, the meeting with Richard Adams, the friendship that followed and the beauty of the Downs inspired the collection of paintings based on the story.
