DESCRIPTION:

Olazo Large-Scale is a survey of select paintings by Romulo Olazo done over his artistic career spanning the period of 1974 to 2014. This survey is a celebration of Olazo’s work by zeroing in on one aspect of the artist’s oeuvre – his penchant for largeness. It will also serve as the artists return to the halls of the CCP, the Center being home to a number of firsts in Olazo’s artistic career, including his first one-man show (1974), the first time he exhibited a large-scale painting (1978), and his first one-painting-one-man show (1981), among others. He was also one of CCP's 13 Artists in 1972. Olazo Large-Scale will also commemorate Olazo’s 83rd birthday on 21 July and his second death anniversary on 18 August.
