Renowned Filipino artist Manuel A. Rodriguez Sr. (above), father of Philippine Contemporary Printmaking, will launch his autobiography “Manuel A. Rodriguez Sr., His Life And Art,” written by Eva Florentino, on Sept. 16 (at 6 p.m.) at the Philippine Center on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

“Mang Maning” will sign books and talk about healing art, color vibration and the fine art of printmaking.

“It is no small matter for rejoicing that Mang Maning finally has a book of his own,” says Alice Guillermo.

“It is the first extensive work on the artist — his life and times, a life of continual struggle to where he is now.”
