About the Artist:

Cesare A.X. Syjuco is undoubtedly the most acclaimed Filipino multi-media artist of our time, and is likewise a prizewinning painter, poet, composer and art critic of international stature. Once widely regarded as "the Golden Boy of Philippine Art", his remarkably varied distinctions have included the prestigious TOYM (Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Philippines) Award for Art & Culture Advancement; the Gerry Roxas Foundation Presidential Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Arts; the Gawad CCP Sa Sining Biswal from the Cultural Center of the Philippines; the AAP Grand Prize and Gold Medal for Painting from the Art Association of the Philippines; the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Award for Literature in English Poetry; the UNESCO Paris Gold Medals for Photography and Design; the CMMA Outstanding Filipino Communicator Citation from The Catholic Mass Media Awards; and the first Purita Kalaw-Ledesma Award for Art Criticism, among many others - all before the age of 40.

Cesare’s sudden and mysterious disappearance in 1992 – at the height of his tumultuous and often controversial art career – transformed him, in the words of one writer, “from the country’s most visible art renegade.. into something even larger than life.. a cult figure of legend among his peers”. But it is largely for his groundbreaking experimental works in “visual-literary transmedia” that his reputation as a world-class Filipino artist endures to this day.
