At 44, artist was just blossoming
Working alone on hydraulic platform in Downsview Park
His colourful work was beginning to surface across the city
By Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporter
Pedro ALDERETE was putting the finishing touches on his largest and most public piece of work -- a five-part mural on the outside of a million-square-foot building at Downsview Park -- when he died Monday.
Working alone on a section of the mural that symbolized stewardship and included a portrait of his 5-year-old daughter, the 44-year-old artist was crushed between a hydraulic platform and the warehouse-style door he was painting. Emergency workers who rushed to the scene were unable to revive him, said park spokesman Garth HARDIE.
ALDERETE's mural at the national park was the up-and-coming artist's biggest commission yet and his own idea. A casual visitor at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health on Queen St. W., ALDERETE sold his first piece in a patients-only show there last summer and was in the midst of planning a solo display at the centre set to open next month. Friends said the Cuban expatriate devoted much of his last 15 years to volunteering for an eclectic mix of artists' organizations. Finally, his work had begun to surface across the city.
"In the art community in Toronto, everybody knows Pedro," said Ilona ZAREMBA, a visual artist and close friend. "His voice was always the loudest. He was always smiling, helping people, always willing to talk. He was very committed as an artist. Five months ago, people started loving his work." His pieces were so good, ZAREMBA said, that ALDERETE was invited to travel to a Mexico City art show last year. A fear of flying kept him grounded. Frustrated, ALDERETE vowed to conquer his fear this year and purchased a plane ticket for a trip to home to Cuba in December.
HARDIE said he didn't know of anyone who was working near ALDERETE at the time of the accident. Yesterday, investigators removed the equipment that crushed the artist, HARDIE said, adding that the labour ministry is still investigating the incident and few details are known. Ministry officials did not return a call for comment.
ALDERETE was a member of the board of directors of A-Space, which displays politically motivated work. Last summer, he was featured in Our Roots and Beyond, a display at Gallery 61 on Ossington St. In 2004, his work was shown in a display of Latino art at the DeLeon White Gallery on Queen St. W.
Jazz singer Chantal ASTON, ALDERETE's partner, said she learned of his death late Monday afternoon when police came to her door. Too stunned to speak, she made her way to ZAREMBA's home on Queen St. W. where she, ALDERETE and their daughter, Irea, often gathered with Friends.
"She just obviously couldn't talk," said ZAREMBA. Instead, Irea told them what she had gleaned from the police.
"She said, 'My daddy was killed in an accident,'" ZAREMBA said.
By nightfall, a small group of artists had gathered at ZAREMBA's home. Bewildered and disbelieving, they held an all-night vigil, savouring the memory of their friend bike riding along Queen St. and creating mixed-media installations to decorate his apartment.
Yesterday, the group went to the park to lay bouquets, light candles and pay their respects. They also met with park officials to discuss building a permanent memorial at the site.
"We need something," ZAREMBA said, pausing, "so that he doesn't go away just like that."
The group spent much of last night figuring out how to help ASTON pay for ALDERETE's memorial service. Bruno DILLIO, a friend and artist, said the group intends to hold an exposition in ALDERETE's honour at the Gladstone Hotel on Queen St. W. in the coming weeks. ZAREMBA said they're also planning to set up a trust fund for Irea and to lessen the burden of living without ALDERETE.
Already, ALDERETE's death has created a void. "It's hard to imagine who I'm going to have finish my sentences," ASTON said. "Through a lot of hardships that he endured, he was just blossoming at this time in his life. Work was going well. He was having shows. He had a great mural that he was painting... all of this was happening when this happened.
"I feel honoured that he picked me to be loved."

Damaged shelter lacked sprinklers
Facility still met building, fire codes
40-year-old man died in Sunday fire
By Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporter
The Fred Victor Centre, where a 40-year-old man died in a fire Sunday night, met building and fire code standards even though it did not have sprinklers in residential areas, the centre's executive director says.
Sprinklers are located in the garbage area and parking and ground-level areas of the centre, which provides permanent housing for 194 previously homeless people, Mark ASTON said yesterday.
He said the fire code didn't require them in residential levels. Fire department spokesman David SHEEN confirmed that the four-storey centre complied with sprinkler standards.
Fire victim Abdirazak (Nero) KAILLIE was found in his second-floor apartment, next to the apartment where the blaze started, police Det. Matt MOYER said.
ASTON said smoking was a possible cause of the fire, but added, "that would be speculation at this point." He said smoking was permitted in the apartments.
KAILLIE's distraught sister and mother arrived at the fire scene Sunday night and spoke with police, MOYER said.
Born in Somalia, KAILLIE had lived in the centre for about 18 months, said Keith HAMBLY, director of Fred Victor's housing and shelter services.
"He was well liked in the community," HAMBLY said. It was a "fresh start for him."
One friend said KAILLIE was receiving disability payments.
About 50 Fred Victor residents were affected by the fire and were offered room at downtown shelters so they wouldn't have to go back on the streets, ASTON said.
"If we have a way to prevent such tragedies in the future then we have a responsibility to consider it," said Brendan AGNEW- ILER, a spokesperson for Mayor David MILLER.
Toronto Fire Chief Bill STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said he wants sprinklers made mandatory in all new residential construction. He said the department is supporting a private member's bill on mandatory sprinklers in new residential construction that is scheduled for second reading at Queen's Park on Thursday.
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART acknowledged that retrofitting residential buildings with sprinklers would be costly. "The industry indicates it costs about $3.50 to $4 per square foot," he said. If the Fred Victor board has the money, he said, "then in the interest of public safety, why not?"
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said there were 259 fire deaths in Toronto between 1994 and 2004, of which 223 were on residential properties.
