For more than forty years Al Green devoted himself to sculpture, a passion that has coloured his life. Green found his artistic voice quickly, pursuing a cubistic and angular style with confidence and strong technical ability. The presence and emotional power of Green\'s work were recognized immediately by his peers, including renowned artists Sorel Etrog and Maryon Kantaroff.

As co-founder of Greenwin Construction, he helped develop and shape the urban landscape of Toronto. He is a tireless philanthropist, recently honoured with the Order of Canada for his devotion to community service. Early on he received the nickname “Dream Maker” because of his community involvement and generosity. 

In 2000, he founded the Al Green Sculpture Studio  School  which fulfilled his desire to provide a venue for sculptors to work and learn in an open, accessible environment. He continues to enrich himself and others through his involvement in arts organizations including The Canadian Sculptor’s Society of Canada and The Art Gallery of Ontario.

Over his career Al Green has completed many large commissioned projects and has donated sculptures to a wide variety of charities. He exhibited extensively and his work can be found in public and private collections in Canada and around the world.
