[20th Cent 1st ED-MD]*** While taking up a Liberal arts course at UP with some fine arts subjects, Vicente Alvarez Dizon influenced him to go into art education. In 1956, he started to teach at UST, later’s retirement. Rivera’s earliest style was influenced by the academic realism of his UP professors, but in 191 he abandoned realism altogether for semi-abstraction and analytic cubism. His works from 1951-’57 are considered his best, characterized by tightness of composition and sober or muted colors. He evolved a distinct style, blending semi-abstract figurativism and stained glass and mosaic techniques. Hon mention, AAP, 1955.
