Paintings and Poetry By Tomas Javier Calvillo Unna

Every visitor to the Philippines looks at the country and its people with a variety of personal impressions.

So how do the Philippines and Filipinos appear through a foreigner's eyes? Inspired by his stay in the country, Ambassador Tomas Javier Calvillo Unna of Mexico has created a number of paintings and written poems, which will be showcased in his first solo exhibit in Manila.

Composed of two parts entitled Sentimientos Filipinos and Traces of Sadness, the show will be on view at Yuchengco Museum from October 3 to 31.

Sentimientos Filipinos and Traces of Sadness showcase the creative pursuits of Ambassador Calvillo, who has published several books based on his writings. On exhibit are more than 100 of his abstract oil and acrylic paintings and 15 of poems, all painted or written while in the Philippines.

Born in Mexico City, Ambassador Calvillo studied International Relations at Colegio de Mexico, pursued his Masters in History at Universidad Iberoamericana, and completed his PhD in Social Sciences with a major in History at Universidad de Guadalajara and Centro de Investigacion en Anthropologia Social de Occidente. He is the founder and president of Colegio de San Luis. Ambassador Calvillo’s poetry has been published in several books such as El ombligo del agua (The Navel of the Water), Poesia 1979 - 1993 (Poetry 1979 - 1993), El fondo de las cosas (The Bottom of Things), Epistolario de Angelina (Correspondence of Angelina), and Palabra que es la llave (That is the Key Word).
