Learn about the processes and art practices of one of the Black Artists of Asia, Nunelucio Alvarado on February 6, 2015 (Friday) from 3 to 5pm at the Lopez Museum's Cafe of Letters.
Known for works of art that depict faces, plight and struggle of the Negros-based Sakadas (laborers hired from outside), and marginalized sectors, Alvarado established Pamilya Pintura and Pintor Kulapol in Bacolod. He was a founding member of Concerned Artists of Negros and the Black Artists of Asia, and also an art Director of Syano Artlink.
Alvarado has held exhibitions locally and internationally (Singapore, 1996 and 2004; Japan, 1997; and the US, 1998). In 1992 he represented the Philippines in the first Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in Australia. He has received numerous awards including the Thirteen Artist Award of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) in 1992 and the grand prize in Philip Morris Philippine Art Awards in 1997 and 1999.
