(b. 1982) Aileen Lanuza completed her studies at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts where she was a consistent college scholar graduating with honors. She has received recognition from the Malacañang Palace, the Nationwide Caltex Sci-art Competition, and McCann Erickson; and has been published in ‘A Treasury of Philippine Nudes,’ ‘100 Years, 100 Nudes,’ and ‘Filipino Artists in their Studios, Vol.2.’
Aileen’s style has consistently focused on women and the female experience; from realistic Filipinianas and pop art homages, to impressionistic self-portraits and enigmatic figures, she invites her audience to contemplate the emotion and context of her subjects. She conveys the careful balance between stillness and strength – the inherent power of the feminine to be both soft and strong.
