When Filipino pop-rock bands in the early 2010s started to gain mainstream prominence, Autotelic emerged as one of the movement’s leading voices.

The Sudden Flight of Chiqui Rodriguez.


37 Year old Abstract Painter Chiqui Rodriguez just recently opened the first  series of Sudden Flight last May 29, an exhibit featuring 20 artwork she masterfully created,  it’s in house at Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences in Salcedo Village in Makati City, hosted by Altromondo.

Technique use as explain by Chiqui is more of an engineering one wherein a body of liquid is in horizontal that in combination is the best way to convey her message.

Sudden Flight is consist of 100 pieces of painting, 20 is seen in Manila preview while the rest will be showcase abroad. This is the sixth solo exhibit of Chiqui as a Filipina renowned abstract artist. 

As an undergraduate of Philippine Studies at the University of the Philippines, Chiqui believe her artistic talent can be rooted to her ancestors; her grandfather is a cousin of FerdigonVocalanm, a known painter of Angono in Rizal that runs a  famous Art resto, the Balaw-Balaw Restaurant in the province that called the Art Capital of the country.

Sudden flight will last until July 18. For more information you may contact Altromondo at telephone nos.501-3270.
