Angelito Antonio

Angelito Antonio (Geometric & Figurative Abstracts) was born in Malolos, Bulacan 1939. Finished his BFA at UST in 1963, where he taught for many years. Married to painter Norma Belleza. Sons Marcel and Emil, and daughter Fatima are painters in their own right. Father Mariano also took fine arts at UP. Works first exhibited at Phil Art Gallery, 1963. Started with a black-and white series but later developed his own color schemes using such as colors as acidic yellow. Used black charcoal-like strokes as structuring principle in his works. Has experimented with particular hues to delineate figures. His subjects have primarily been of folk genre, including cockfighters, vendors, ice cream peddlers, and balloon sellers. The works of Angelito Antonio depicting mother-and-child are that has grown through the years. While he shares obsession with other artist, Antonio’s work with the Madonna is underlined with its own distinctive vigor. (Source: CCP Vol IV; Archipelago Magazine )
