Onib Olmedo (1937–1996)

Untitled (Sidewalk Scene)

1974

Oil on canvas

76.2 x 76.2 cm (30 x 30 in)

Quick Overview

Against a vibrant green-paneled wall, Onib Olmedo paints a scene that evokes a sense of presence even when no figure is in the still. While the composition centers on a garbage can, the objects around it tell narratives of their own. A pair of denim jeans, belt still strung, is haphazardly slumped over a pipe at the top, left in a pile. A little girl’s doll sits by the base, as if intentionally left for another to treasure. An artist who had an affinity for portraying urban realities in a confrontational manner, Olmedo finds his strength in providing viewers with poignant vignettes of the subtleties of everyday life often overlooked. Gisella Olmedo-Araneta has graciously confirmed the authenticity of this artwork
