NEW BEGINNINGS (article first published : 2005-10-19)

Artist Tito Valeriano will host his first exhibition at Bevel Art Gallery at the Stables where 25 of his latest oils on canvas will be on display. He has named the exhibition New Beginnings as he feels that at last he is able to get his work moving in Durban. Bevel gallery have in recent months sold quite a few of his paintings.

Tito Valeriano was born on March 20, 1977, in Nampula, Mozambique. He started drawing and painting at the age of 9 and this has been his passion ever since and he sold his first painting in 1998. He left his schooling early as times were hard financially and went to the Ademo Art & Culture School for a number of years.

In 1999 he came to live in South Africa and settled in Johannesburg were he spent time at the Market Theatre, meeting many artists and learning a great deal from them. He moved to Durban five years ago. Tito works in all mediums but his great love is oils on canvas and he enjoys working in portraits.

The exhibition opens on November 4 at 19h00 and runs until December 1. The Stables are situated at 175 Horse Chestnut Lane and are open on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 18h00 to 22h00 (Sundays from 10h00 to 17h00).
