Luis Ac-ac

Since the first time we saw the amazing works of Luis Ac-ac in his workshop, we immediately had the passion of owning his art.

“Art imitating life, life imitating art” is the best way to describe the works of artist Luisito Ac-ac. Children playing traditional games, hardworking rural families at work, idealized image of local heroes, familiar tableaus taken from native folklore and old Manila characters in refine pose are just some of his sculptures that inspire emulation.

Known for his dexterity and talent, his prized works have been included in the collections of famous art collectors and his approach in art has been respected by both local and international art communities. 

Growing up in the woodcarving town of Paete in Laguna, Mang Luis has been living in an artistic milieu since he was a child. He started creating his obras at the age of 11 using a set of chisels owned by master carver Tandang Nano Madrigal.

As a UP Fine Art student, he took a job as an illustrator in a printing press then as an apprentice of National Artist Napoleon Abueva. After earning his degree, the young Luis devoted full time to sculpture, setting up his studio in his hometown.
