A glimpse into the distinguished life and artistic practice of renowned Italian-Canadian painter Albert Chiarandini, OSA, FIAL (1915-2007). Chiarandini’s artistic practice was as diverse and variant as life itself, his works showcase an assortment of subjects, including vivid Canadian Landscapes, portraits of Yorkville Hippies, and thought-provoking political scenes. Although he painted a variety of contexts and concepts his inherent curiosity for the human condition gives a soulful and honest articulation of his subjects.
