Richard Arimado

Richard Arimado (b. 1970), Born and raised in Manila, has always had an artistic inclination. He studied Drafting Tech at the Technological Institute of the Philippines, and Advertising at the Panday Sining Art Study Center. This early, Arimado has already developed a masterly style and his own artistic signature by painting birds-­-eye views of pedestrians and their commutes.

As if they notice the audience, Arimado paints his subjects in the act of looking up, pausing to examine the audience staring down at them. His vision of turn-­-of-­-the-­-century motifs shows a strong nostalgic tendency of our cultural past and of the artist's, as he explores various aspects of the Philippine way of life. Freezing mid-­-walk was perhaps a luxury we have forgotten, but is captured with wide-­-eyed curiosity by the intrepid painter. In 2012 His Recent two-­-man exhibit titled "Biyahe" was a sold out success.
