click the link below for his Galleria


Bayani Ray Acala was born and raised in the town of Paete, immersing himself in the artistic progeny this side of Laguna famous for its woodcarving tradition. He went to the University of Santo Tomas College of Fine Arts, finishing his advertising course in 1996.

Acala first worked as an in-house desktop artist at the Suara Design and Communication. By that time, he had joined various competitions, emerging as third prize winner at the Center for Campus Ministry On-the-Spot Painting Contest, a semi-finalist at the Metrobank Annual Painting Competition, in 1997, and third prize, in 1999, in the same contest. A veteran of group shows held in different venues, he had his first solo exhibit, “La Pleine Lune,” (Full Moon) at the Galerie Joaquin. This was followed by another solo show “Ligawan,” (The Courtship) in the same venue, both shows exploring the theme of romantic dalliances and trysts, with erotic underpinnings.

Acala focuses on women as protagonist in these well-delineated trysts and games of seduction. His women, however, are depicted as strong, independent-minded creatures who have no qualms being caught in these dalliances. In colorful, Gaugainesque tableaux, he delineates women as lusty, if libidinal, earth-bound, nocturnal nymphs who succeed in radiating a rare presence, for both their vulnerability and eroticism.

Acala often stages his mise-en-scene in the lush ambience of trysting places, the protagonists occasionally indulging in musical activities as a most welcome diversion. His paintings have evolved in time, as the artist wrests imminent control on his subject, infusing new perspectives and seriocomic touches in the process. Thanks to the exposure and the honing from Galerie Joaquin, Acala is well on his way to becoming one of the exciting emerging artists of his generation.

Paete artistic talent has not stopped to amaze me. But this Bayani Ray Acala's website is terrific. He has a lot of paintings with musical theme. I guess he is continuing to build an Acala music dynasty. It started with Amang Abraham who translated famous arias into Tagalog. Then I remember Kang Ana, my everfaithful penpal, whom I miss dearly. She was a music teacher and choral singer. Then in 2004, I met Abe who is a talented and promising young musician/conductor. The saga continues. Long may they live!

Hi Ross,
Kumusta na uli at thank you very much for sharing us the link to Bayani Ray Acala's website. Napakaganda ng kaniyang mga collections of paintings from styles, theme and most of all the colors wow na wow talaga.

Sa kaniyang style at sa kaniyang batang edad will make him to be talk of the town by art collectors at for sure will belong to the group by Baldemor's, Malang, Francisco's and others.

To Mr.Bayani Ray Acala, it's nice to see Paetenian like you making it bigtime in the artworld which is always a struggle for other artists.

Dada Abraham Acala and your family really proud of you.

Mabuhay and God Bless.
