He graduated with top honors in Fine Arts, with a minor in Art Restoration, from the Royal Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest in 1943, winning the Royal Scholarship Award in his final year. Biro was recruited into the army during World War II, and was made a prisoner of war for four years. Upon his release after the war, Biro worked for the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest as a researcher, restorer and consultant, restoring historic monuments and artwork that had suffered damage during the war. He began exhibiting his own works in the 1950s at the National Gallery of Hungary and, in the early 1960's, was exhibited in Austria and Sweden. In 1967, Biro immigrated to Canada, settling in Montreal and eventually gained recognition as a landscape artist. He held numerous shows in Canada, the United States, Australia and Europe. Biro opened up the Center for Art Restoration along with his two sons, where he exhibited his works and took restoration commissions as well. His works are part of the collections of the Hungarian National Gallery, Ministry of Cultural Affairs of Hungary, the Office of the Governor of Vermont, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and in numerous corporate collections throughout Canada.Biro died in Montreal in 2008.Selected Corporate, Private and Public CollectionsBayer Chemicals, Philadelphia, PABow Valley Industries, Calgary, ABClaridge Collection, Montreal, QCCollegium Pazmanaeum, Vienna, AustriaDouglas Hospital, Montreal, QCDr. Lorenz Bohler Collection, Vienna, AustriaFBI Foods Ltd, Montreal, QCFour Winds Gallery, Ferrisburg, VTFournier, Demers, Barnard & Associates, Montreal, QCMinistry of Cultural Affairs, Budapest, HungaryMontreal Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal, QCMontreal Neurological Institute, Montreal QCNational Gallery of Hungary, BudapestOffice of the Governor of Vermont, Montpelier, VTSchlesinger & Schlesinger, Montreal, QCSefel & Associates, Calgary, ABSelected Solo and Group Exhibitions1986Gallery Peter Paul Biro, Montreal, QC1985Gallery Peter Paul Biro, Montreal, QC1984Gallery Peter Paul Biro, Montreal, QC1983Salon International des Galeries d'Arts, Montreal, QCAtelier J.
