Marcel Antonio has always been driven by an innate curiosity — precociousness — of the world around him. This, coupled with his love for books, stands as the foundation of his works.
It helped, too, growing up surrounded by art as his parents — Angelito Antonio and Norma Belleza — are renowned painters in their own right. Over and above these, however, is Antonio’s skill in translating humanity and human emotions through his art.
