Antonio Leaño's Iñdio @ Pinto Art Gallery

Antonio Leaño
Pinto Art Gallery, Antipolo
Opens 31 May 2009

Antonio Leaño showcases his most recent mixed-media works and drawings in Iñdio which opens on May 31 and runs until June 20, 2009 at Pinto Art Gallery, Antipolo City.

As an artist who refuses to be boxed-in, Leaño’s latest exhibit defies expectations and explores yet another mode to express his sensibilities. His deep insight and interest in math, physics, cosmology, architecture and history in combination with his aesthetics result in works that strike a harmonious balance to the eye and the soul. Each carefully chosen visual component merge with each other to make-up a creative whole that is simultaneously intense and subdued.

Leaño blends negative and positive spaces as he fuses figurative and non-figurative representations to orient and even re-orient given perceptions. Aiming to challenge the viewers’ visual acuity and acquiescence, the artist employs imagery from our Spanish colonial past, amalgamated with other archaic elements, while resting in a quiet yet highly textured expanse. This play of contra-positional facets captivates and provokes the senses.

Leaño was a recipient of various awards and distinctions, with a number of notable solo and group exhibitions, both locally and internationally, tucked under his belt. The artist also took part in several residency programs in Japan and Australia. He has a reservoir of experience and discovery to cull from.

Unlike connotations passed, this Iñdio is far from disparaging or deprecating, rather, he is imbued with immense pride and dignity. Antonio Leaño makes sure of that.

Iñdio opens on the 31st of May, Sunday, 3pm at Pinto Art Gallery in Antipolo City . Pinto Art Gallery is a member of the Silangan Foundation for the Arts, Culture and Ecology. It is located at #1 Sierra Madre St. Grandheights, Antipolo, City. For inquiries you may email us at or call us at (632) 6971015.
