The well-travelled, jet set, Oscar Zalameda has concocted a distinctive brand of cubism. Featuring the rural and the idyllic, his canvasses usually host countryside montages, fishermen, and barrio lasses, among other things.
Having studied in the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts and the Sorbonne in Paris, Zalameda has managed to incorporate a European quality in his work, mixed with an international world-view.
Despite his international travels, residences, and influences, however, prevalent still in Zalameda’s work is the very Filipino context in his renditions — a display of his unwavering love for his motherland.
