MARCEL ANTONIO who majored in painting at the University of the Philippines is considered one of the most promising modern Filipino painters. His art is distinctive, proficient, and rapaciously collected. His wide-ranging audience has granted him heavy critical and mainstream success. He is the prize of collectors, the indulgence of art dealers, and the envy of many fellow artists. Marcel's vivid modern expressionism and mysterious themes hit chords with avid collectors and observant laypeople alike. He enjoys fable-inspired images where myth, mystery, and reality become entwined like a visual poem of sorts. Indeed, it is the story behind the painting that captures so many people's attention and it is hard to walk away from a Marcel painting without a sense of realization and beautiful ambiguity.
