Alberto
Amarildo

Alberto Amarildo was born in Maputo, Mozambique and studied art at 'Escola de Artes' in Maputo.

Amarildo worked as a textile designer, before opening his own art studio 'Phambili', together with fellow Mozambique artist Manuel Mangue , in Durban, Kwa Zulu-Natal.  Since then he has worked as a full time artist, successfully exhibiting in art galleries in South Africa, Europe and Australia.

His flamboyant and vibrant large works are full of fun, energy and vitality; his trademark being swirling figures with a dreamlike quality. Amarildo enjoys working in different media such as soft pastel, oil pastel, oils, graphic and wood carving prints.  He describes his motivation accordingly: "I paint the everyday life in Africa, with its joys and sorrows."
