Text by Demetrio Paparoni, Contributions by Patrick Duarte Flores and Elio Cappuccio and Ricky Francisco
The first comprehensive monograph on the life and career of the Filipino artist Andres Barrioquinto, a rising star of the contemporary Southeast Asian art scene.
The volume deals with the complex universe of the artist (Manila, 1975), who combines elements deriving from the iconography and aesthetic of Baroque with Japanese woodcuts (ukiyo-e), reinterpreted in a Pop style. In his paintings, men, women, and anthropomorphic animals are shown in forests plentiful with butterflies and birds, introducing the theme of vanitas in a context of strong visual impact.
