Paintings and poetic quotes from Norberto Roldan

Contemporary artist Norberto Roldan has brought to light a rather revolutionary way of portraying a theme and giving his black and white paintings interesting context. Each painting from this series is divided with one side holding an image and the other containing a stimulating text quote, some of which seem to have very little to do with the subject matter at first. However, the poetry gives the piece a very different feel as a whole and gives the beholder much to ponder. Roldan’s work specifically offers a commentary on the social, political, and cultural conditions of his native Philippines where he lives and works in Manila. Soak in his artwork below!
