Word Search: Table of Fish by Ang Kiukok


Ang Kiukok (b. 1931, d. 2005), was a renowned Filipino Expressionist whose colorful and striking paintings portrayed a variety of cubist-like figures such as a mother embracing her infant, grisly crucifixions, tables holding an array of fish and fruit, stray dogs, and screaming subjects.

Kiukok studied art at Manila’s University of Santo Tomas in 1952. There, he met his good friend and mentor National Artist for Painting (1981) Vicente Manansala, whom he assisted in the completion of the Stations of the Cross for the Church of the Holy Sacrifice in the University of the Philippines Diliman. He was a prominent figure in the local art scene during the Marcos era, with his art reflecting the ill emotions of the socio-political landscape.

He has won numerous awards from the Art Association of the Philippines and his work has been widely exhibited locally and internationally. Before his passing in 2005, he was conferred National Artist for Visual Arts in 2001 by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Hidden Objects: Portrait of a Seaman by Hendrik Goltzius


Hendrick Goltzius (b. 1558, d. 1617) was an engraver, print publisher, draftsman and painter. Born and raised in Germany, he moved to Haarlem to establish his own print publishing business in the late 1570’s. He trained engravers to work in his distinctive engraving style. In 1590, he traveled to Italy to study ancient sculpture and paintings of the High Renaissance masters in Rome, Florence, Venice, and Bologna. Upon his return to Haarlem, his works shifted to the more normative, classic forms of the Italian and Northern Renaissance that would continue through the rest of his career. In 1600, Goltzius left printmaking and went into painting- a result of his failing eyesight after years of working with the burin and possibly influenced by the theory of his friend and biographer Karel Van Mander, that painting was viewed as more prestigious than engraving. Influenced by Titian and Rubens, Goltzius continued to be recognized for his work in painting, best known for his masterpiece Danaë at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Paint by Numbers: Fisherfolk 2/2 by Cenon Rivera


Cenon Rivera (b.1922 - d.1998) was an artist, writer, and teacher. He studied at the University of Santo Tomas (UST) under the mentorship of Victorio Edades and taught in the same university from the 1950s until his retirement in 1994. Rivera apprenticed in Vertrate d’Arte Giuliani in Rome, making him one of the few Filipino artists trained in stained glass making. Notably, he designed stained glass murals in the Mt. Samat National Shrine in Bataan and stained glass panels in the Immaculate Conception Cathedral of Pasig. His practice in glass making became evident in his paintings and prints that made use of horizontal and vertical grids similar to stained glass designs. In 1997, he was conferred the title Professor Emeritus at UST for his contributions in the College of Architecture & Fine Arts.

Riddle Me This: AristoCart by Daniel Coquilla


Daniel “Dansoy” Coquilla (b. 1970) is an artist known for his scenes of everyday Filipino life with his characters looking upwards. Born in Panabo City, Davao del Norte, he moved to Manila to pursue his studies at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts. He was taken in by Fred Liongoren to be assistant at Liongoren Gallery where he gained exposure to works of artists such as Danilo Dalena, Norma Belleza, Onib Olmedo and Antonio Austria. He has exhibited his works locally and abroad, and has received several distinctions such as the Grand Prize in the Art Association of Philippines painting competition (1996), Juror’s Choice in the 4th Philip Morris ASEAN Art Awards (1997), and the UP Gawad Chanselor para sa Sining Biswal (1998). In 2006, he became a recipient of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Thirteen Artists Award.

Make It Your Own: My Sister at the Sewing Machine 2-Page Coloring Sheet


David Cortez Medalla (b.1938) is a London-based Filipino visual artist, and a pioneer of kinetic art, earth art, performance art, participation art and conceptual art. At the age of 12, he had already lectured at the University of the Philippines, and by 14 he was admitted to Columbia University in New York to study philosophy and Greek drama. In the mid 1950s, he returned to the Philippines and met Fernando Zóbel, the artist, educator and philanthropist, who later on became one of his earliest patrons. Medalla then moved to Europe, where he has based himself since while traversing the globe with his multi-disciplinary art practice.

He has exhibited in numerous international art exhibitions and festivals including Documenta 5, the 16th Biennale of Sydney, and is the director and founder of the London Biennale. Medalla is represented in museum collections including the Ateneo Art Gallery, the FRAC – Pays de la Loire in France and Tate Britain in the UK. In May 2011, the artist unveiled one of his iconic bubble machines “Cloud Canyons No. 14” at New York’s New Museum. Described as the first work of auto-creative art, it was selected by exhibitions director Massimiliano Gioni as an iconic modern work of art.

Coloring Sheet: Carroza by Fernando Zóbel


Carroza was the piece that introduced Fernando Zóbel to the local art community. This work garnered the first prize in the 1953 Art Association of the Philippines (AAP) Painting Competition. Zóbel joined the contest incognito and those who had seen the work thought it was done by established artists such as H.R. Ocampo and Cenon Rivera. The Carroza is one of Zóbel’s few surviving figurative works, as he went on to be more prominently known as an abstract expressionist painter.

Fernando Zóbel (b. 1924 - d. 1984) was respected as an artist, an art patron and an intellectual. He was an active member of the Art Association of the Philippines and supported his peers and young artists, among them Arturo Luz, Lee Aguinaldo, David Medalla, Roberto Chabet and Virgilio Aviado.
