A monograph on the life and work of artist Mario Parial (1944-2013) by Ruben D.F. Defeo.

He graduated in 1969 from the University of Santos College of Fine Arts, where he also taught courses in printmaking, painting and photography. A student of pioneering Filipino printmaker Manuel Rodriguez Sr., Parial actively produced woodcuts and rubbercuts in the 60s, before shifting to acrylic and oil painting in the 70s.
