Norma Belleza

Norma Belleza was born in San Fernando, Pampanga 1939. (Folknaifs) BFA UST 1962. Belonged to a family of movie marquee and billboard painters. Husband Angelito Antonio and children Fatima, Emil and Marcel, are active painters. First Solo, Phil Art Gallery, 1963, where she was artist in residence with painter-husband Llito. Stopped painting for a decade, then had a solo of new works at Metro Gallery, 1976. Has had nine one-person shows since, such as at the Luz and ABC Gallery, among others. Latest solo, 1992, Heritage Art Center, SM Megamall. At first, Belleza's paintings were dark and sombre, later progressing into wildly colorful and detailed work on folk genre, including women vendors, potters , and peasants. Figurative works placed emphasis on her subjects physical strength and appearance. Colos has remained of primary importance. Her debt to Roualt is undisputable, both in the manner she draws her figures and in the way she frames them against her backgrounds. her colors, in almost relief-like use of layered impasto, throb with livid greens and yellows out of surrounding blacks and reds.
