Even in her youth, del Rosario was enthused with the existence of art and all of its forms. She chose a Fine Arts degree at the University of Santo Tomas (UST) and selected advertising as her major, which enabled her to study different kinds of media.
Del Rosario–inspired by the works of other artists that she admired and encountered, as well as the observations of beauty that she wanted to preserve–picked up a brush and immortalized them on canvas, with oil and watercolor as her paint of choice. She considers painting as one of the most robust forms of art, and has the utmost respect for it. Painting invoked her to discover her own style and find her voice.
Painter, designer, illustrator, jewelry designer, and sculptor – Anita del Rosario is genuinely a sublime figure
Because of her background in Advertising, she explored drawing and subsequently became an illustrator for a local comic book magazine.
While the process of transforming words into a visual journey was a challenge, it was a very gratifying one for del Rosario. She assisted in weaving graphic narratives of universal emotional themes such as love, despair, victory, and tragedy.
The craft was meticulous and demanded high-level technique and ingenuity, where del Rosario established her status as a premier artist in sculpted jewelry.
Her unique definition of elegance is reflected in her pieces where the authentic and meaningful value of a piece does not automatically parallel with extravagance or lavishness as she can set illustrious gems using the most modest of materials.

Further, del Rosario’s craft earned her a reputation in the “Who’s Who” of the Philippine social circle who collected her pieces because each piece is unique that is designed exclusively for a single client. Her friend and one of her patrons brought up that she should craft bigger versions so that the details are more evident, which led to her starting her sculptures.
Because of diversity in work, she was one of the recipients of 100 Women Artists: The Centennial of the Feminist Movement in the Philippines by the Cultural Center of the Philippines in 2015.
So if you want to know more about Anita del Rosario, CINCO gives a rare opportunity for the public to view this amazing artist’s works for the first time. Plus, admission is free!
