in Malagueno, Cordova, Argentina, Ledda completed his studies
at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cordova, where he also taught
for a short period of time. Due to an abundance of requests
for his paintings, he then decided to dedicate himself to
painting and scenic design.
works are full of heavy, round figures, with sharp colors but
bright and airy at the same time.
figures of his paintings fill every architectural backgroud.
They are big women, large and proud, without arrogance
and are happy with themselves. The men in the paintings,
however, appear to be very shy and although large, they are
not obese. They seem to be used in the paintings to only
create equilibrium to the composition.
Ledda began exhibiting in 1965 in the Gallery of
Modern Art in Cordova. Since
then, he has presented his paintings in more than 50 personal
exhibits, both private and public, in Argentina, Spain,
Germany, France, Canada and Italy.
He has also been invited by cultural institutes around
the world to show his masterpieces in many public galleries.
