Featured Artist: Erwin Mallari

Style: Figurative in Social Realism

Erwin Mallari, the artist, was born on November 3, 1979 in Malabon, Metro Manila. He is the eldest of two siblings.  He had neither background nor formal training in the visual arts until he reached his 4th year in high school.

Erwin studied at the University of the East College (UE) of Fine Arts from 1997 to 2002. He did not finish his studies but opted to work as a clean-up artist in an animation studio instead. He was employed as a props man, photographer, printer operator, and a graphic designer.

In 2011, Erwin decided to pursue a painting career focusing particularly on oil and watercolor mediums rendered in monochromatic hues. By 2012, Erwin expounded his color palette and chose watercolor as his main medium.

Combining his talent for photography and discipline in watercolor, Erwin managed to paint a retrospect of Metro Manila with a nostalgic appeal. A complete turnabout from what we commonly view the urban areas. An artist’s interpretation of what could be or perhaps what it truly is.
