Nune Alvarado

Iconic Negrense painter Nunelucio Melocoton Alvarado is regarded as one of the most prominent visual artists in the Philippines and has won international critical acclaim for his art rooted in Social Realism.

In 1992, he was among the Thirteen Artists awardees of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. He was twice a recipient of the prestigious Philip Morris Art Awards in 1997 and then again in 1999. He was honored with the Patnubay ng Sining at Kalinangan sa Larangan ng Pintura Award in 2004. Alvarado has had at least 50 solo exhibitions all over the Philippines as well as in Singapore, and has participated in numerous group shows in Australia, Japan and the U.S.A.

An advocate of art as weapon for social change, he stimulates artists’ social involvement in the agri-rural communities through the art organizations that he co-founded. Alvarado is a member of the Bacolod’s BAA (Black Artists in Asia) and founder of Pamilya Pintura and Pintor Kulapol. His lifetime of art heraldry is devoted to the uplift of Philippine Art and culture and the attainment of social justice for the sacadas and fisherfolk of our country.
