THE Cultural Center of the Philippines is proud to present an exhibit of Romulo Olazo paintings, titled “Olazo Large-Scale,” on view from July 15 to September 8, 2017, at Bulwagang Juan Luna (Main Gallery) and Pasilyo Guillermo Tolentino (3F Hallway Gallery).
The first major exhibition organized after artist Olazo’s death, Olazo Large-Scale re-affirms the master’s place as a maker — and marker — of grand productions. The exhibit also re-introduces his work — now his legacy — to the contemporary audience, as well as reconnects the artist’s roots to the CCP.

To celebrate the life of this truly exceptional man and document his artistry over the years, Paseo Gallery, in collaboration with the artist’s family, unveiled a 388-page coffee table book last July 23.
The book entitled, Romulo Olazo features the vivid and fascinating photographs of Olazo’s crafts: majority of it are Diaphonous paintings, while the rest are graphic and figurative oeuvres. Also featured are the artist’s pictures that detail his journey for many years.
