Don Djerassi Dalmacio
Don Dalmacio is a multi-awarded artist who expresses himself in painting, installations and photography. He has worked with several artists, collectives and art groups in various capacities: coordinator, organizer, exhibition designer and curator. As a visual artists, his works deal and play with memory. He deconstructs, distorts, edits and cuts particular images to give it a different twist. Such manipulations afford viewers the freedom to interpret and give meaning to what they see. With wit and humor he incorporates text and context, be it within the work itself, in the titles or in combination, to further engage his audience.
Traversing the middle-ground between abstraction and realism, Dalmacio involves everyone to ingest his creations in a personal yet unobtrusive manner. His works have the capacity to make a poignant demarcation while tempting to go beyond comfort zones of interpretation. This is derived from the artist’s belief that imposing one singular perception is restrictive.
He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Major in Advertising Design in Far Eastern University in 2003.
