Aldo Walker (1938–2000) is one of the great artists whose significance has to this day not been fully appreciated. He produced an amazing oeuvre, which materialised particularly in two outstanding series, namely his ‘logotypes’ (sculpture-like experimental configurations) and ‘pictograms’ (figurative line pictures).
They are among the great undiscovered highlights of international art in the 1970s and 1980s and display impressive independence in terms of conception, expression and realisation. Stylistically they embody a strange homogeneity; style and a lack of it are combined in a new way and create something that had never been seen before.
