Romulo Galicano’s art has come to be known for its photo-realistic aesthetic. A multifaceted artist, Galicano creates his stunning, highly detailed works in various media, from watercolors, to pastels, and oil.
Refined is Galicano’s style, capturing every detail of this very setting — from the faint shadows of the lanky trees laid across the foreground, to the pieces of clothing hung to dry flailing in the air. A homey sense of nostalgia is induced by the glum atmosphere,as a wistfulness is brewed by the dark clouds in the background adding hint of gloom to the play on the familiar.
Just earlier this year, Galicano was bestowed the Status Signature Award — an award that recognizes both practicing and accomplished artists who are dedicated to the educational mission and high aesthetic standards of the Portrait Society of America.
