Self-taught artist, Alfredo LONGO was born in 1959 in Frameries, he currently lives and works in Mons.
The artist's first idea is to recycle the cans (UN GESTE POUR LA PLANETE) and to make them works of art. He created sculptures (hearts, heads, busts, Super Heroes), relief paintings, monumental works. His colorful creations may be monochromatic or subtle degraded; They are made from compressed cans (one part one) and then assembled. A concept probably unique in the world and which has assured the reputation of a self-taught artist, by his "TRANSFORM 'ART KOMPRESS", marriage of the art and the recycling of used cans. Its unprecedented pieces include 200 to 8,000 cans, 50,000 cans for monumental pieces of more than 5 m high placed on sites (eg a big heart for the City of MONS, European Capital of Culture for 2015.
