RL News: Ed Castrillo’s Children Pay Homage to His Art

The Castrillo siblings’ joint exhibit celebrates the legacy of this prolific Filipino Artist

Shares

Art is mostly housed in museums and viewed by a select few, so it is the mark of a celebrated artist if his works are set out in public spaces, for everyone to see and appreciate.

Such are the works of the late sculptor Eduardo Castrillo, whose large-scale sculptures are so ubiquitous and so monumental, with most located along major thoroughfares, seen by all who go about their daily commutes. They are also all very iconic, are the locations of uprisings past and present (the People Power Monument), and even institutions of grief (Loyola Memorial Park). His works are examples of art addressing the emotions of the public, and the public reacting to the presence of the art.

What many people don’t know is that Castrillo, who passed away in May of this year, also created many small-scale pieces throughout his almost-50-year-career. His children, daughter Ovvian and son Nixio Castrillo—sculptors in their own right—are holding their joint exhibition “Anchor: An Homage To Eduardo Castrillo” to honor their father’s work, and to the artistic knowledge he had passed on to them.
