After visiting the linked sites, one senses a very Reubenesque take on the human form, though extended way more.

Would this now be common in the Philippine milieu? Quite a departure from the Amorsolo period.

The local art scene, Amadeo, is vibrant and teeming with many talent wjoa are pursuing various styles.

I love Tayona's Reubenesque forms. I think he's the only one doing such locally.

I miss going to such exhibits. I have wanted to visit the exhibits here too....time and companion won't allow me lol.

Enjoy tomorrow's coverage SenorE, I'm sure there'd be lots of cameras flashing (kung hindi bawal).

Much enjoyment too to the man of the night!

I've a feeling it'll be a much attended affair by his friends and art enthusiasts and collectors. I like his works and wish him the very best.

Thanks G. Mirage!

The gallery hours is the same as that of the mall, Rhoda, so I guess, until 10pm? You may want to check out the gallery's link just to make sure :)

How I wish I can be there for the opening night of Palma Toyona one-man-art show! He's one of my blog mates and I really admired his vibrant style. I would say this painting you posted, the woman w/ calla lilies reminds me of the painting of Diego Rivera, a famous Mexican artist.I would say that Tayona's paintings have more delicious Latin flavor. Good luck and best wishes to him on his art show.

He is really a talented fellow, Ebb Tide. I'm certain he'll be very famous in the not too distant future. His works have a certain "feel good" about them :)

Unable to attend his opening last night. Without company, I don't feel comfortable driving at night alone. The Fort is quite a drive from where I live :(

Thanks for posting the update and article about Tayona from the newspaper. The artist posted the photo in his blog but the prints are too small to read. You know, I got connected to this artist through blog. He found my blog through your blog and he dropped me a wonderful comment. He's not only a good artist but a good blog-mate. Someday , I hope to meet him in person and see his paintings too.

My pleasure, Ebb Tide!

Daniel may someday have shows in the States, or you may have one here in Manila wherein you guys can meet :)

Glad to promote our talent!
