To make the celebrations even better, they are offering the Sinulog Merienda Cena (
Parklane’s Ms. Aquino expressed the hotel’s commitment to believe in and showcase local talent. Mr. Rosello is definitely a great choice for that endeavor.
Ruel Rosello – Colorful and Joyful Paintings
I had the pleasure of attending the launch of Saulog and enjoyed all of the paintings on display.
Ruel Rosello is a well-known Cebuano artist, especially for his black and white caricatures. These days, he spends hours on his paintings showcasing his devotion for Sto. Niño.
What’s great about his paintings is that they are very colorful and exudes unfettered joy. Mr. Rosello also has a unique art style that I find highly interesting. All the faces on his work have bulging eyes and two teeth!
The artist candidly shared during his speech that his wife has ovary cyst cancer and that their devotion to Sto. Niño has gotten them through so many tough times during their 20 years of marriage and his wife’s illness.
Because of their difficulty in conceiving, Mr. Rosello paints mostly children on his canvas as an offer to Sto. Niño. Part of the proceeds of his work also goes to a charity organization championing young cancer patients.
If you are into art and love colorful and joyful paintings, do consider checking his exhibit in Parklane. You can even buy one of his works to support cancer warriors and Mr. Rosello’s art.
You can follow Ruel Rosell on Facebook via his page, Niño Art Hub by Ruel Rosello.
