Angono Rizal’s Blanco Museum


One of the most memorable moments during my recent trip to Angono in Rizal Philippines is the visit to the Blanco Family Museum. I must admit, I was so surprised at what I saw. An family that is just so blessed with all the talents in visual arts.

I was so amazed to know that one of the Blanco kids, Peter Paul has started sketching at the very young age of eleven months! Wow! It’s just pure talent that runs in the Blanco family blood. Check out the painting below. You will notice that Peter Paul can barely write his name legibly, but his artwork looks so astonishing. Looks like a work of an adult painter.

And all of them are realism painters. This means that their artworks are depicted as they appear in everyday life.

I am just so amazed at their talent. And indeed, visiting Angono will not be complete without going to the Blanco Museum.

    wow. they are truly talented. i can’t believe that even the kids know how to hold a brush and paint like those in the artists’ museum. I hope i could visit them and see how beautiful their works are and of course, I be proud of them.
