Lolita Valderrama Savage – Art Exhibit

 

Our own Lolita Valderrama Savage is an Asian – American fine artist who lives in New York City and Florence, Italy. She was born in Manila and exhibits her artworks internationally in the USA, Asia and Europe. Lolita was the first Philippine woman to have lived and exhibited art works in solo exhibitions in Stockholm and other parts of Sweden. She is also the first Filipina to show her artworks at the Palazzo Strozzi and Casa Di Dante in Florence, Italy. Her paintings have been shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Lolita holds a degree in Fine Arts from The University of Santo Tomas in Manila and a Licenza in Pittura at the Accademia Di Belle Arti di Firenze. She will be the first Filipino – American woman to exhibit at the Palazzo Medici Riccardi in Florence.

The proceeds of all monies that Lolita receives from the sale of her paintings during this exhibition, will go to the Philippines Relief Fund for the Typhoon “Haiyan” and the American International League of Florence.

Visit her exhibit, which runs from December 4th – January 2, 2014!

Congratulations Lolita, we love you!
