<p> Altino Villasante is an individual possessing a tremendous natural insight into his surrounding and environment, allowing, through pure intuition, the spontaneous creation of masterful works. Every character study, every architectural painting and every harbor scene is a personal interpretation of life, of his surrounding and of his environment as seen through his eyes, totally void of academic influence; exposure to other artist and the contemporary art movement has, at most, been minimal. Villasante is an excellent and gifted artist by nature, not by education. Villasante was born in 1965 in the poorest section of Peru, Puno. At the age of 7 he was taken to the port of Lima with expectations of emigrating to the USA. Because of legal implications, he was not to realize his dream. He remained alone in Lima, never returning to Puno, and stayed by himself as the sole occupant in the house all these years. Villasante&#39;s brush strokes show his character -- strong and determined.</p>
