 Francisco G. Villanueva is an artist in
Negros Oriental who has embraced earth as
mother lode sustaining a creative discipline
which elevates primal clay to the statues of
transcendent art. Inspired Creation is a
Villanueva hallmark. These are figures,
structures, forms retrieved from classical
antiquity and Philippine landscape. Each
figure is moving slowly into icon-hood and
each structure’s architectural detailing
resonates with the original temporal and
spiritual concerns for which they had been
built to accommodate.
He started his artwork at the age of 10, and
in 1977 doing head sculptures, he began
sculpting facades of old churches in the
Philippines. In his early 30s, Francis gained
international recognition with his first one -
man show at the Philippine Center, United
Nations Complex, New York in 1980.

to what was in store for the audience.

resplendent. One by one the cellists
came, and took the audience through
a sweeping musical journey from the
Baroque period of the late 1600s to
the high romantics of the 19thcentury.
