A decorated and internationally exhibited artist, Arceli Dans has been known to create photorealistic works that exude a Filipino sensibility.
A recurring element in Dans’ oeuvre is the ‘calado,’ embroidered fabric sewn in such a way so as to produce intricate lacy designs. The ‘calado’ serves its purpose, embellishing this piece further, accenting the ever present flora that is always abloom throughout Dans’ body of work.
This very work by Dans is done in watercolor, a testament to the artist’s technical prowess.
