Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Al Furtado

From the exciting and dazzling dancers to the beautiful children and ethnic cultures that inhabit these islands, the works of Alfred Furtado capture vivid memories of Hawaii¹s people.

A schooled artist, having graduated from the prestigious Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, Mr. Furtado went on to a lengthy and successful career in commercial art. Noted as a fine illustrator, his works also included Graphic design, architectural renderings and art director for mainland as well as local companies.

A working artist, teacher and lecturer for over 40 years, Furtado's fine art work has been acknowledged through private showings and sales for homes, hotels and other commercial institutions, as well as to private collectors internationally.

For those who live here, the paintings bring forth memories of family, for those who were island born and moved away, they are nostalgia.
For visitors to the islands fortunate enough to have met local people and enjoyed being a part of the culture, the art is a remembrance of a unique experience.
