About Alcuaz

Federico Alcuaz is one of the country’s internationally renowned and multi-awarded artists, having excelled beyond the borders of the Philippine islands. Juggling two degrees in college - Fine Arts degree in University of the Philippines in the morning where he was taught by National Artists such as Fernando Amorsolo, Guillermo Tolentino to name a few, and a pre-law degree in San Beda College in the evening, it is no doubt that the Federico Alcuaz we’ve come to celebrate today will reach this kind of recognition.

Alcuaz did not stop there, he continued his studies in law at the Ateneo de Manila University but decided to pursue art on a full-time basis.
