Albino Cavallito studied at the Trenton School of Industrial Art in New Jersey, the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design in New York, and the Fontainebleau School of Fine Art in France. He also worked with the sculptor José de Creeft, who may have encouraged him to use the direct carving method. Cavallito won many awards for his animals and figures, including the gold medal for sculpture from the Allied Artists of America in 1954.
