About the Artist
Over three decades of Chiqui Rodriguez' life takes her from the Philippines' art capital in Angono (the hometown where she shared with national artists Carlos "Botong" Francisco and Lucio D San Pedro) to Berlin and various international art scenes. Granddaughter to a well-known realist artist - the late Perdigon Vocalan, Chiqui is known for her emotionally uplifting abstract paintings.
Chiqui Rodriguez' paintings have all gone up in value since 2000. Globally, 25 artworks from the "Sparkling radiance in the midst of still air" (2012) series exhibited in "Nothing but the Stars" in Berlin have been sold out. DMCI commissioned the artist to do a series of paintings "Quintessence of Faith" (2008) installed at one of their luxury properties in Manila. Her art and design encompass an astonishing variety of media including painting, drawing, music covers, and interior design to name a few. Her abstract art ranges from coffee on paper featuring "intense" post-modern imagery, to her "advection" painting that exemplifies the movement of paint due to force and transforms into celestial bodies. Her limited edition paintings continue to rise in value that makes her one of the most sought-after living artists, and an important voice in the art scene.
Chiqui's paintings are collected by the diplomatic community, art collectors, investors, politicians, businessmen, young professionals, and corporations in Southeast Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America. Aside from its investment value, the artworks are perfect for decorating homes, office buildings, schools, restaurants, and public spaces. Her paintings have been included in the Saatchi Art "Showdown" for "Manifestation - Painting No.1" and Nothing but the Stars Series No.1 - Bright Lights (Panel 13)" in Los Angeles, California in 2011 and 2012. Another artwork from the Manifestation series has been recently sold through auction at the May 2020 Salcedo Auctions | Gavel&Block for the painting "Manifestation - Painting No. 19."
A doctoral candidate at the University of the Philippines, an alumna of the Asian Institute of Management, and a former executive from two of the world's Fortune 100 companies, Chiqui already helped profit and non-profit organizations in developing countries in the fields of global strategy, corporate performance, e-commerce, design communication, analytics, and business intelligence. She is one of the renowned artists of Saatchi Art and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.
