Event Information:

Florencio Yllana returns to his Chicago roots for a limited showing of Rubedo. 

Florencio was born in 1977 in the city of Manila, in the Island of Luzon, Phillipines. He began to paint and draw at an early age, and was influenced by his constant exposure to museums of all themes. He moved to the United States and found an explosion of ideas and moments that further inspired him in his artistic path. In 1995 his studies brought him to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and participated actively in its artistic movements. There he found the expressionists, the symbolists and decadents and the contemporaries which further inspired him to continue the lineage of art. 

Since 2002 Florencio has been based primarily in Brazil and Europe, where he finds many of the influences portrayed in the phantasmagoric and romantic themes displayed here in the Rubedo Exhibit.
