Anthony Palomo

Anthony Palomo was a member of Salingpusa art collective, a group of struggling young painters formed in the 1990s who have since then pursued celebrated individual careers as artists. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts (major in Painting) at the University of the Philippines in Diliman in 1992 and started exhibiting his works in public that same year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Palomo won several national art competitions, most notable of which are the Grand Prize (WatercoIor Category) at the 24th Shell National Students Art Competition in 1991, Grand Prize (Watercolor Category) of the 11th Metrobank National Painting Competition in 1994, and a citation as finalist in the 1999 Philip Morris Philippine Art Awards.

 

Palomo, who is notable for combining human figures with botanicals in geometric patterns to provide a refreshing buffer to his figurations, represented the country at the 1997 Perak Art Festival held in West Malaysia and was part of the 2004 Philippine Independence Day celebration travelling group exhibit in West Germany, in cooperation with the Philippine Embassy.
