Earlier in his career, Angelito Antonio’s artistic predilections started with a black and white series. Such had later developed into his own unique style, fusing into his work his own stylized delineation and color schemes. Using black charcoal-like strokes as the structuring principle of his works, he has through the years experimented with particular hues to define his figures — such, concocting a unique flair in his cubistic creations.
This very work by the renowned modern is from 1983. In the piece, Antonio takes the classical Tres Marias theme and gives it his own stylistic twist. Done in Antonio’s signature hues of blue and acid yellow, the composition comes to life in all its distinctive elegance — a testament to Antonio’s creative genius.
