Rene Robles (The Transformation of The Commonplace)

“In the highly competitive Philippine art scene, artists of remarkable talent abound and from each generation emerges a younger breed of exceptional abilities. Rising above the rubble, as it were, is Rene Robles, esteemed as a senior and major Filipino artist, who has proven, through several decades of active and prolific art-making, producing works ranging from portraiture, still lifes, nudes, landscapes, religious images, murals, figuration and abstraction, that talent forged in the smithy of passion, commitment and dedication, will endure and never be commonplace.” Cid Reyes, Art Critic
