Project name and description
ANER SEBASTIAN, born in 1964, grew up in Sta Mesa, Manila. Sebastian has developed a method of dividing pictorial space into grid patterns within which he renders varying perspectives, usually nature elements. In all of Sebastian's works there is constant merging and dividing of the lush and heavily detailed images. There is also the tension between lyrical forms and geometric patterns. These characteristics give off shimmering, mesmerizing effect.
His works have won numerous prizes and distinctions, and have been exhibited in various venues in the Philippines as well as Hong Kong, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Luxembourg. His most recent pieces like Weathred (48) and Regeneration (50) show his maturing style. A simplication of forms and more clearly defined color blocks which signal a gradual move toward more non-representational art.
