Severino Awakens: Art Through Pen and Ink

Chuck Severino, a graduate of Architecture at the University of Santo Tomas, has produced schemes and working drawings for LEANDRO LOCSIN from 1995 to 1999. The son of Captain Lino Severino Jr., the pilot and known painter of the Vanishing Scenes Series, developed architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical systems and drawings for THE BOB FLURY DESIGN GROUP in while living in California. He came back to Manila and developed several resorts, commercial and residential projects while playing football as a hobby.

Old Binondo – Severino

Through the years, Chuck has explored a variety of media – from watercolor, pencil and pastel – drawing inspiration from his father Lino, who would bring him to Taza De Oro in Ermita, Tagaytay Highlands, Antipolo or with the Saturday Group (with Romulo Olazo, Hernando Ocampo, Cesar Legaspi, Ephraim Samson, Agustin Goy and Ang Kiukok) who would meet on a regular basis for painting sessions.

Chuck draws from his experience and passion as a Fully Manual Architect — devoid of computers and AutoCAD, his penetrating attention to detail, and his fresh yet distinct perspective.

At present, he has derived great inspiration from the intriguing use of INK through the FIBRE-TIP PEN as a medium for expressing his views and his consciousness.

This coming June 27-30, Chuck will hold his first-ever exhibit titled, “Severino Awakens: Art Through Pen and Ink” at the second floor of The Podium, which would be a tribute to his father.
