About Alcuaz

Federico Alcuaz is one of the country’s internationally renowned and multi-awarded artists, having excelled beyond the borders of the Philippine islands. Juggling two degrees in college- Fine Arts degree in University of the Philippines in the morning where he was taught by National Artists such as Fernando Amorsolo, Guillermo Tolentino to name a few, and a pre-law degree in San Beda College in the evening, it is no doubt that the Federico Alcuaz we’ve come to celebrate today will reach this kind of recognition.

Alcuaz did not stop there, he continued his studies in law at the Ateneo de Manila University but decided to pursue art on a full-time basis.

Proving himself worthy of his chosen career, Alcuaz has since bagged awards for his works from across the globe and of course in his own country with Presidential Medal of Merit Award at 2005 under his belt and being claimed as a National Artist for visual arts.

Alcuaz has come to be known for his “Tres Marias,” his Manila landscape series, portraits and his abstracts.

Alcuaz’s works are showcased in 20 museums and major cultural institutions all over the world.  In his 55 year career he has exhibited in leading galleries in Spain, the Philippines, Portugal, Poland, the United States and Germany.
