Roberto Berondo, Sr.

Roberto Berondo, Sr., or Bert Berondo is a 54 year old self-taught artist. He discovered his innate talent when he was still a little boy, and experimented with all types of media until he found his ultimate calling in pen-and-ink, as well as in terra cotta.

Bert dropped out of his Education course due to financial reasons and devoted his life in the arts. His main bread and butter, he soon found his niche in pen-and-ink, featuring the little black people and the working class.

He looks up to Filipino national artists most especially Malang and Vicente Manansala. His "squarish" strokes, he says, is his version of cubism, but always retaining the local Filipino flavor.
