Collection: Eugenia Artango Villasper
Feminine and strong, classic and cutting edge, introspective and revelatory - these are the contrasting yet harmonious evocations of Eugenia "Gene" Artago Villasper eloquent and expressive maximalist works of art. As if embodying the manifold hats worn by their multi-hyphenate creator, the elegant and ethereal denizens of her paintings are women who are more that what meets the eye; their complexities revealed upon extended contemplation. In this way, the heart of the artist is laid open and within, we find a power brightly burning and a fiercely hopeful vision of achieving positivity through art.
Villasper, Gene to her family and friends, is a Philippine contemporary artist who is known for her cubistic and surrealistic representation of women. She is an alumna of the University of the East where she earned her bachelor's degree in fine arts in advertising in 1002. Afterwards, she delved headfirst into the profession and eventually became an art director at Chasms advertising and Money Savers Magazine.
