Cesar Legaspi

Cesar Legaspi on April 2, 1917 in Tondo, Manila [1917–1994] is a Filipino National Artist awardee in painting. He was also an art director prior to going full-time in his visual art practice in the 1960s. His early [1940s-1960s] works, alongside those of peer, Hernando Ocampo are described as depictions of anguish and dehumanization of beggars and laborers in the city. These include Man and Woman [alternatively known as Beggars] and Gadgets'. Primarily because of this early period, critics have further cited Legaspi's having "reconstituted" in his paintings "cubism's unfeeling, geometric ordering of figures into a social expressionism rendered by interacting forms filled with rhythmic movement".

Si Cesar Torrente Legaspi [1917-1994], ay pinarangalan bilang isang Pambansang Alagad ng Sining noong 1990, at siyang itinuturing na nagpasimula ng neo-realism sa Pilipinas at nagpaunlad ng cubism sa bansa.

Bilang isa sa Thirteen Moderns at kabilang sa mga naunang Neo-Realist, nagkaroon ng malakas na impluwensiya sa paglago ng cubism sa Pilipinas si Legaspi. Ang mga nilikha niyang social-realist na nagpapakita ng mga pulubi sa siyudad at mga manggagawa ay maituturing na expressionist dahil sa paggamit niya ng gula-gulanit na porma. Ang kanyang mga likha ay hindi lang ilan sa mga naunang gawa na moderno; nakatulong ang mga ito na matanggap ang modernong arte sa Pilipinas.

Siya rin ay naging ilustrador sa magasin at naging artistic director sa ilang ahensiya habang siya ay gumuguhit ng kanyang mga obra.

ion luca caragiale

here's an artwork made through the invitation of a fellow artist from Romania, Nicolae Ionita. this is my contribution:)

Ion Luca Caragiale [Romanian pronunciation: [iˈon ˈluka karaˈd͡ʒjale]; commonly referred to as I. L. Caragiale; February 13 [O.S. February 1, 1852 – July 9, 1912] was a Wallachian-born Romanian playwright, short story writer, poet, theater manager, political commentator and journalist. Leaving behind an important cultural legacy, he is considered one of the greatest playwrights in Romanian language and literature, as well as one of its most important writers and a leading representative of local humor. Alongside Mihai Eminescu, Ioan Slavici and Ion Creangă, he is seen as one of the main representatives of Junimea, an influential literary society with which he nonetheless parted during the second half of his life. His work, spanning four decades, covers the ground between Neoclassicism, Realism, and Naturalism, building on an original synthesis of foreign and local influences.

Roberto Bernardi

Roberto Bernardi was borm in Todi on the 18th of May 1974.

He started to paint at a very young age and his first works in oils date back to the first half of the eighties. He dedicated his studies to the learning of pictorial techniques which would have a significant influence on his artistic formation.

The work of Bernardi is super-realism. The realistic elements of the composition are filtered through a photographic image resulting in a highly technological reproduction. This image is then successfully translated, using the traditional techniques of oil painting on canvas, to a perfect image of reality. Despite adopting the aid of advanced photo technology, his personal translation of his subjects follows a classical line, such as the traditional priming of the canvas, as practised by the painters of the 16th and 17th centuries, combined with the perfection of oil painting technique.
