Born in 1971, Aia Leu is a landscape artist who works in oil and watercolours, she moved to Kenmare, Kerry in 1989. A third generation artist, her paternal grandmother is the Swiss artist Eva Aeppli.
Aia's work draws directly from her multicultural and bohemian upbringing, which saw her raised 'on the road', as her parents followed their dream of a life of 'art and freedom'. Her work is particularly influenced by both her years spent as a child in India, and the richness of the Irish landscape.
She has exhibited in Ireland with solo shows at the Carnegie Arts Centre and group shows internationally, her work is currently on exhibition as a part of 'Leu Family Art' at the Museum Tinguely Basel, Switzerland.
