          Powerful impassioned strokes and evocative palette selection are some qualities of the Master’s oeuvre.  A highly renowned Modernist, Mauro Malang Santos is among the most recognized and sought after artists  of today.  Initially drawing inspiration from the realities of urban life, Malang had incorporated into his art the very afflictions of the Filipino commoner — ever so elegantly rendering them in his distinct cubist style. 

          Later in his career, Malang veered his sights towards more brilliant renditions of the Filipina woman, paying homage to their strength and hardwork.  From mothers to flower vendors, the more mature Malang puts on display his seasoned hand — flaunting his mastery of his  medium and the maturity of his aesthetic.
