Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he started his dedication towards paintings and drawings by the age of 11 with a clear goal of becoming an artist. By the age of 16, he was made a member of the Artists Association of Sao Paulo. Nevertheless he was not intimidated by the premature and ascending success of his career, moving on into his studies and researches, searching for the excellence of his art. His professors were Salvador Rodrigues Junior, Sante Bullo and Giovanni Oppido. In his creations, being a simple study or a more complex composition, he is always making use of the nature as a source of information and inspiration.

On his journey to Russia in 1999, the beginning of a new artistic stage took place in his career. In the first year, he studied at the V. A. Surikov Institute, Moscow. In 2000, he was transferred to Saint Petersburg, being accepted as a student at the I. E. Repin State Academic Institute of Fine Arts, Sculpture and Architecture. In his first year at the Academy, he attended Yuri Kalyuta and Vladimir Stetsenko's Studio. In the second year, he attended professors Sergey Pichahchi and Gennadi Monasherov's Studio. The following years up to his majoring, he attended painting lessons with master Vasily Sokolov and his assistant Vasily Rudnev and drawing lessons with Professor Vladimir Mogilevtsev.

Throughout his majoring, Gilberto Geraldo painted copies of great masters at the Hermitage Museum: Flora, Rembrandt Van Rijn; The Lute Player, Michelangelo Merisi Caravaggio; and Portrait of Princess Catarina Van Leunink, Gerard Terborch.

Gilberto Geraldo received the highest awards in the major and most prestigious Art Competitions of Brazil, being also invited as a jury member in many others. He had his works in individual and group exhibitions and many of his pieces are part of private collections in Brazil and abroad. He has been the first Brazilian artist majoring at the Russian Academy of Fine Arts, Saint Petersburg. Academy founded in 1757, graduating artists who have become masters of the Russian Art, such as Karl Briullov, Alexander Ivanov, Ilya Repin, Ivan Kramskoi, Ivan Shishkin, Valentin Serov, Henryk Siemiradzki, Nikolai Fechin, among many others. Many of Gilberto's works, during his years as a student, were kept in the Academy Museum collection. He received awards in many internal Art Competitions and two of his works, part of the Academy collection, are published in the book Academic Drawings and Sketches, presented by Professor Vladimir Mogilevtsev.

In 2007, he defended his diploma, with honors, in a work entitled Brazilian Indians. Also, he became a member of the Russian Artists Association of Saint Petersburg.

Gilberto Geraldo is currently preparing his dissertation for the doctorate degree in History of Art.
