Dave Palanca

Dave Palanca's art career started when he joined the Pintor Kulapol Art Group Exhibit at West Negros College in 1996. He then participated in the Earth Day Art Jam painting exhibition at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum in 1998. In 2001 he entered in the Philip Morris ASEAN Art Contest.

A scion of a conservative elite clan, Dave in his late 40's emerges as the artist of the family. Ironically, his social realist style often depicts the farm laborers of Negros, typical scenes of his childhood visits to the haciendas.

Having finished pre-law in Ateneo and Nursing in Riverside College, Dave is able to separate his equally distinct courses from his art, as he insists that his precise anatomical drawings in school are totally different from his sacada artworks of people who are often depicted with enveloping arms and contorted face and feet.
