Lovers & Fighters: Episode 4

Get to know the glittering, erotic world of Christian Aldo

Following a stint as an exotic dancer/gallery owner in New York City, Windsor-born artist Christian Aldo moves to Toronto and converts an old shoe store into a gallery – only to close it months later after a rent increase.

Follow the ongoing saga of the Brigadier General of erotic and glittering art shows as he battles landlords, homelessness and the demands of fronting a band, making art, running a gallery and recovering from house fires, in this fascinating portrait of a man who will not be subdued.

Lovers & Fighters profiles a group of remarkable Toronto artists and creators fueled by what the legendary artist Christo called “the unstoppable urge” to manifest their wild and ambitious vision. Watch Episodes 1-3 here.
