Homage to Michelangelo @ Galleria Duemila

"Homage to Michelangelo"
Tomas F. Concepcion
Galleria Duemila
(March 31, 2007 to April 30, 2007)

Rome Based Filipino Artist/Labor Leader, Tomas F. Concepcion returns to the country not to conquer the House of Representatives as he did in the 9th Congress, when he was the voice of the Overseas Filipino Workers,but to stage a long overdue one man show.

A true-blue Maranaw royalty, Tomas F. Concepcion was born in Marawi City and is the youngest brother of the late Human Rights Commissioner Mary Concepcion Bautista. At 17, Tomas F. Concepcion left for the U.S. and studied at the San Francisco State College where he majored in Painting and Theater Design.

His early years in Rome, gained him a reputation of a much sought after portrait painter for the nobility and intellectuals, such as Prince Steno Borghese, Duchess Nicoletta de Serracapriola, Soprano Leontyne Price, conductor Thomas Shippers, Banker Baron Leon Lambert and film actors like Silvana Mangano and Marcello Mastroianni.

After more than 40 years in the arts, Tomas F. Concepcion is known for his eloquent bronzes and paintings. His remarkable sculptures includes that of Pope John Paul II displayed in Guam and Mexico and that of Ninoy Aquino at the People's Park, EDSA. Private collectors and top dignitaries around the globe are collecting his pieces. His exhibitions gained admiration in Rome, Paris, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Manila.

Tomas F. Concepcion is returning to the country with an exhibition entitled Homage to Michelangelo. He is presenting large scale paintings, prints and bronzes.

Tomas F. Concepcion believes that Michelangelo is the greatest painter and sculptor since the 15th Century Renaissance, and was the first modernist to free art from the stiff and strict stereotypes. His study of Michelangelo has freed his art from bourgeois constraints and repressions.
