Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Marcel Antonio, born June 28, 1965, is a Filipino painter of contemporary art. A graduate of the University of the Philippines' College of Fine Arts, he has produced narrative and pseudo-narrative figurative paintings influenced by modernism and 1980s postmodernism.

Antonio's works involve a clear expressionism with mysterious themes, often utilizing images that combine myth with reality and suggest stories behind the paintings.

Antonio is the son of Philippine painters Angelito Antonio and Norma Belleza and brother to painters Emil Antonio and Fatima Baquiran.  By the time Antonio approached his forties in the late 1990s, he had already gone through a number of transitions in search of his signature art, but all within the terms of figuration, centrally human figuration.

In the shaping of his art he has also quoted mannerisms from both of his parents' works. In an interview, Antonio intimated: "I remember the times when my father would teach me how to draw a muscled man. I guess my passion for figures and storytelling comes from that."
