Ayala Museum presents
CONVERSATIONS IN ART
Fernando Zobel Prints and Drawings
A talk and demonstration by Pandy Aviado, printmaker
Saturday, 2 July 2016 | 4:00 – 5:00 PM
This Saturday, Ayala Museum has invited visual artist Virgillio “Pandy” Aviado to hold a talk on Fernando Zobel’s works and to do a demonstration on printmaking. This activity was organized as a supplementary education program for the exhibition Fernando Zobel Prints and Drawings ongoing at the Third Floor Galleries.
The lectures and workshops with Zobel that Aviado attended highly influenced the development of his work. Zobel’s support would also help the artist in his youth to pursue further studies to hone his craft.
About the Speaker
Pandy Aviado (born 1944) first saw prints as a college student at the Ateneo de Manila University. He was a member of the Ateneo Arts Club and was a frequent visitor at the Ateneo Art Gallery (whose collection began through Fernando Zobel’s donation of art works to the university).
Aviado pursued and perfected his creative and technical skills in printmaking during his college years. He first worked on stone lithography, then proceeded to the etching press. He eventually had his own printing press fabricated from spare parts found in a junk shop and set his own studio workshop in his parent’s home. After joining and winning art competitions and doing both solo and group exhibitions, Aviado obtained further training and specialization in etching and lithography in Madrid and Paris.
He was also formerly the President of the Printmakers Association of the Philippines (PAP).
