About Me

Clinton Aniversario

 Visual Artist


Clinton Aniversario considers his body of works as intimate exploration of his indigenous roots and his Christian beliefs. His straddling of both worldviews is found in his diverse work that spans different media including painting, sculpture, digital photography, and installation. Central to most of his paintings are figurative representation of indigenous person rendered in pointillist strokes and surrounded by geometric indigenous iconography. The alarming contrast in both figurative and symbolisms are also applied on his woodwork relief. Often, as he resorts to natural woodgrain color, the distinctions and layers intricately overlap and verge on abstractions in his wooden sculptures.

Aniversario’s breadth of art is owed to the family business, a craft souvenir, antiques, and furniture shop in Tuba, Benguet that opened in 1990s. He co-managed the shop in 2000 before converting it into the Aniversario Art Gallery in 2018. The current space is both a whimsical shop and an art studio where he works non-stop, deciding to make work based on what’s clearing out on the shelf: a painting, a piece of furniture, a sculpture, or an outdoor installation.

Raised in Baguio City where he trained as a medical technologist, Aniversario consequently decided to pursue his art practice. He has had several solo and group exhibitions in Baguio City and in Metro Manila ncluding Tam-awan Village, Victor Oteyza Community Art Space (VOCAS), Art Cube Gallery, Gallery Anna, The Oarhouse, and the Ayala Museum’s Art Space. His works have also been shown in Singapore and at Gangwon Art Fair in South Korea in 2016.
