Alberto de Castro painter - acrylic on canvas Snow Scene. The other 4 parts of the torn painting were framed separately.

Alberto de Castro, born, 1952, of Portuguese parents, in Huambo, Angola, spent his formative years in Spain studying painting before immigrating to Montreal, 1969. Mounting several one-man exhibitions, Alberto won the commission to paint a mural for the Portuguese Pavilion at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. Alberto moved to Toronto in 1980, where his painting style followed the Näif school. Before he died in 1995 at the age of 42, he felt that “Canada was to him what Tahiti was to Gauguin.” Examples of his work can be found throughout Europe, in the Ontario Provincial Legislature, in Toronto’s Our Lady of Lourdes Church, at the Portuguese Consulate, Toronto, and in the corporate offices of Shell, IBM, Imperial Oil, and Sanyo. In 1985, his paintings were used on UNICEF Christmas cards and, in 1986, he exhibited at the third annual Salon international d’art näif in Paris. Many of his works today are kept at the Casa do Alentejo, Toronto’s Portuguese Community Centre.
