Tokwa Peñaflorida

Tokwa Penaflorida (b.1989) is an artist whose diverse work spans children’s book illustrations, conceptual art, and queer erotica. Images inspired by the occult, folklore, and fairytales appears as a constant theme in much of his paintings entwined with his advocacy for representation. Mastering the use of acrylics, watercolor, and digital, his expressionistic body of work echoes a somber opalescence evident by his gradation of pinks and soft, sinuous lines. He graduated with a major in Visual Communication from the UP College of Fine Arts.
