The Blanco family featured at SM City Taytay's My City, My SM, My Art Book Exhibit

 Jose Blanco

February has been declared as National Arts Month to pay tribute to the Filipino artists who continuously promote the beauty and diversity of our heritage and culture through their artistic creations. Rizal is home to well-known artists and budding talents in different fields of visual expressions and artworks. SM City Taytay has always been supportive of the homegrown talents. This year, the Blanco family's artistic heritage is honored at SM City Taytay's My City, My SM, My Art Book Exhibit.

Jose Blanco

Muralist and National Artist nominee Jose Blanco came from a family of fishermen which serves as an inspiration for some of his subject. Famously known by his folk name Pitok Bunggan, he honed his skills in fine arts at the University of Santo Tomas. His art style is folk realism.

Blanco's loving wife Loreta is also an artist. Her paintings of mature women and mothers depict her emotions as a supportive and nurturing mother. First-born son Glenn paints life-like images of nature scenes and rural landscapes. Noel, the second child, topped art competitions at a very young age. The third child Michael is into portrait, genre, and landscape painting. Blanco's fourth child and eldest daughter Joy is known for her very photographic and realistic paintings similar to her father's style.  

The SM City Taytay's My City, My SM, My Art Book Exhibit also includes works of select visual artists of Rizal. The exhibit is located at the 2nd level Building A and will run from February 14 - 19, 2022.
