Ang Kiukok

was born in Davao City 1931 to Chinese immigrants died 2005. (Geometric expressions). Studied art at UST 1952-’54, where he recd instruction from Victorio Edades, Victorio Edades , Diosdado Lorenzo, Garcia Llamas, and Vicente Manansala. Later taught art overseas Chinese children in Sulu in 1956 for a period of five years. Was a Ramon Roces publications artist with Manansala, who would become a close mentor and teacher. Asisted Manansala on the 14 at the Chapel of the Holy Sacrifice in Diliman. Accompanied Manansala to the States in 1965 and while there, was able to view Picasso’s and the works of Oswaldo Guayassisimo. In 1966, started to paint geometric, grotesque figures with metallic parts and visible innards, or snarling cats and dogs in posture of rabid ferocity, vastly different from his early watercolors of Southern vintas, stilt houses and sea nomads. His usual palette also charged into the student, fauvist colors for which he has become well known. Anguished crucified Christ figures, mother and child themes, fish skeletons, cabinets and tables, junkyards, and crowing roosters are common subject matter. First solo, Contemporary Art Gallery, 1954, with a total of 30 solos to date. Was 1st prize winner, AAP Annual of 1959. Won five other prizes from the AAP, his last in 1963. Was a Mobil Awards finalist, 1980. Recd the Patnubay ng Sining at Kalinangan award, 1976. Outstanding overseas in art, 1961. His alma mater also gave him an award as outstanding alumnus, 1978***One facet of Ang’s mechanical skill stems from his mastery of the Chinese brush. He attracts his subjects, however, with a completely Western approach- planular, linear forms reduced to chromatic surfaces interacting tonally or as masses. He simplifies shapes and reduces them to flat textural surface. Concerned with composition, his colors have become intense and dramatic, more evocative. His lines have developed a spontaneity, a bravura. Line and color now inter play without prejudice to the other . His works include an extension of style, a universality that could equate him eventually with the foremost painters of our time. [Silangan Vol IX No 3 Jan 1964- Jesus Peralta]
