As a member of the Dimasalang Group, Sofronio y Mendoza thrived in structure and the use of color.
Often seen as the antithesis to the dominant modernist of the 1970s. Mendoza's paintings often depict lush and vibrant sceneries of idyllic landscapes that harken back to a classical style.
The artist makes it a habit to imbue his works with a sincere sense of vitality that aptly captures both the aesthetic and essence of his subjects.
