About the Artist


My Background

Over three  decades of Chiqui Rodriguez' life takes her from the Philippines'  art  capital in Angono (the hometown where she shared with national  artists  Carlos "Botong" Francisco and Lucio D San Pedro) to Berlin and  various  international art scenes.  Granddaughter to a well-known  realist artist -  the late Perdigon Vocalan, Chiqui is known for her  emotionally  uplifting abstract paintings. Her art and design  encompasses an  astonishing variety of media including painting,  drawing, music covers,  and interior design to name a few.  Her abstract  art ranges from coffee  on paper featuring "intense" post-modern  imagery, to her "advection"  painting that exemplifies the movement of  paint due to force and  transforms into celestial bodies. Her limited  edition paintings continue  to rise in value that makes her one of the  most sought-after living  artists, and an important voice in the art  scene.  We are proud that the  Philippines continues to create its mark  in the art world through a  Filipina who comes from an artist lineage in  Angono and produces  artworks that inspire community development.  


My Medium

Inspired by experience, she visualized her emotional responses through a process that began with an electronic sketchpad and lead to expressions, that according to the artist, referred to layers of meaning – sudden bursts of happiness, excitement, compassion, moments of bliss. Her medium is mostly acrylic and coffee because of its flexibility and adaptability on whatever surface it land.  


My Inspiration

The artist is inspired by moments of happiness, love and hope of everyday experiences.  She hopes that her paintings will be able to provide a decent education for underserved children.
