Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Wilfredo Alicdan

Wilfredo Alicdan

Born in Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines
Fine Arts-Major in Painting, Philippine Women's University Institute

Wilfredo Alicdan's works were distinguished by their quaint and
geometric folk representations, populated by rounded, stylized figures
engaged in traditional and rural genre activities. Alicdan's canvases
display a sense of harmony between contrasting formal elements—while
his utilization of solid colors and flat backgrounds reinforces the
two-dimensionality of his paintings, his use of subtle modeling imbues
his figures with rounded, human plasticity. Willy is a founding member
of the Anting-Anting Group of Artists. He helps and supports UNICEF by
lending his works to be reproduced as a Unicef Cards for the benefit of
all the children of the world.
