Synopsis

Vicente Silva Manansala was an award winning Filipino cubist painter and illustrator. One of the first Abstractionists on the Philippine art scene. He is also credited with bridging the gap between the city and the suburbs, between the rural and cosmopolitan ways of life.

His paintings depict a nation in transition, an allusion to the new culture brought by the Americans. He was among the best-selling Philippine artists in the West. He is considered one of the 13 Moderns, a group of modernists associated with Victorio Edades.
