Lives and Works: Philippines
Guerrero Z. Habulan, (born 1980, Malate, Manila) familiarly known as “RG” is a figurative artist who grew up surrounded by his artist father’s colourful artistic life: visiting artists’ studios whilst mingling with creative minds. He learned to draw instinctively, well before undertaking formal training. He acquired a degree in Fine Arts in Visual Communications at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, concurrently winning several awards whilst a student. Habulan continues to be supported under the patronage of Dr. Cuanang, one of Manila’s most foremost art patrons and collectors. He is also a member of the popular art collective Sianviaje of Antipolo City, Rizal, Philippines.
Habulan, a young social realist with a sharp sense of humour, intentionally lightens the load off the sordid truth. Guerrero continues his artistic career - mapping the realities of tradition and progress into a symposium of delightful colour, fantasy and reality. The artist possesses an incredible natural talent and artistic technique that promises to perpetually spellbind his audience. In June 2013, he exhibited The Vicissitudes of Victoria, his second solo exhibition in Singapore, a culmination of his residency at Artesan Singapore in early 2012.
