Meet Alvaro Castagnet

Alvaro was born in Montevideo, Uruguay. His early interest in art was cultivated mainly by his father, who sent him to the National School of Art in Montevideo at a very young age where he was taught by Professor Esteban Garino. Castagnet carried on his formal education in art at the Fine Arts University, where Miguel Angel Pareja was his oil painting tutor.

Castagnet migrated to Australia in 1983, and lived there enjoying the cosmopolitan and forward-looking attitude of that country for 20 years. Alvaro is fluent in Spanish, Italian, and English and currently lives in Montevideo, Uruguay. He has been holding solo exhibitions since 1985, and has been recognised with dozens of awards over the last 30 years.

He is the author of the out-of-print, “Watercolor Painting with Passion” , “Painting with Passion – Beyond Technique” & “Watercolour Masterclass” books. Alvaro is featured in innumerable art books, videos, DVDs and acclaimed international art publications.
His main studio is located in Montevideo, Uruguay. He lives with his wife, Ana Maria. Their 2 sons, live in Melbourne, Australia.
