About the Artist
Dominic Rubio has been described by art critics such as the late Dr. Reuben Canete as the modern-day Damian Domingo with his depictions of various Filipino archetypes.
With his signature and endearing portraits of turn-of-the century Filipino characters with long elongated necks and garbed in period clothes, Rubio highlights the Tipos de Pais genre of Damian Domingo (founding director of Manila’s Academia de Dibujo y Pintura of 1821). In this genre, depiction of the figures, clothes, commerce, and activities of the residents of the Philippine archipelago became part of the country's artistic recorded history whether these be the ilustrado or comprador class, merchants, farm workers, or local folk.
