Pinoys at Sotheby’s

Mario Parial's Tres Marias, 2002, acrylic on canvas


MARIO Parial was among the 10 top Filipino artists included in the 20th anniversary auction of Sotheby’s in Singapore in October, joining the ranks of national artists Fernando Amorsolo, H.R. Ocampo, Ang Kiu Kok and Arturo Luz, and such masters as Juvenal Sanso and Romeo Tabuena.

While still a student at the University of Santo Tomas in 1966, Parial won first prize in the Shell art contest and the grand prize at the Art Association of the Philippines graphic art competition.

Critics say Parial’s paintings are unique renditions of women, vendors, fiestas, kite-flying, and Mother and Child.

His Marian works have been included in two international books on the subject, along with masterpieces by Michaelangelo, El Greco, Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael.
