Angelito Garcia Antonio (February 3, 1939) developed his own color schemes such as acidic yellow, from black-and-white series. His subjects have been primarily folk genre such as cockfighters, vendors, ice cream peddlers, and balloon sellers, which shows the influence of Manansala. Through the years, he developed a style of his own. He is well regarded as a prime mover of action painting and the extension of the cubist style in Philippine Art. His works suggest a sense of Manansala while portraying subjects which are truly Filipino in
context, color, and flavor.
