João António dos Santos Justino Alves was born in the city of Porto in 1940. In 1976, as a Fellow of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Justino Alves left for Paris where he exhibited at the Gallery Documenta, and had works represented in the Salons of “Realités Nouvelles” and “Grand et Jeune D’Aujourd’hui.” At this time, his work is also acquired by the National Collection of France. In 1978, Justino Alves returned to Portugal where he became a professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lisbon, and exhibited in shows across the country. His works are in museums, private collections and public institutions throughout Portugal and Europe.
