History of Print Making in the Philippines
Printmaking in the Philippines did not gain popularity as an art form until the early 1960s. Manuel Rodrigo Sr. and Rodolfo Paras-Perez were responsible for the development of interest in contemporary printmaking techniques. Rodriguez in particular became known as the Father of Philippine Printmaking.
Printmaking was soon taught in several schools. Rodriguez taught at the Philippine Women’s University, making it the unofficial center of printmaking in the country. He helped organize the Philippine Association of Printmakers. The majority of the first young printmakers were taught by Rodriguez either in PWU or in his workshops. Among these are Virgilio Avadio, Lucio Martines, Lamberto Hechanova, Restituto Embuscado, Mario Parial, Adiel Arevalo, Petite Calaguas, Emet Valente, Brenda Fajardo, Nelfa Querubin, Ivi Avellana-Cosio , and Nonon Padilla as well as his own sons Manuel Jr., Marcelino, and Ray Rodriguez.

In the 1930s Rodriguez was first introduced to the art of printmaking and in 19 4 8 he spent a lot of his time reproducing his paintings via screen printing methods. Rodriguez began to really experiment with printmaking in the 1950s, making greeting cards of rural Philippine life.
He left the Philippines in the 19 6 0 sfor New York to pursue a Rockefeller printmaking scholarship at the prestigious Pratt Graphic Center. It was during 19 6 0 - 6 2 that Rodriguez worked in the print department of the Museum of Modern Art, after which he repeatedly visited the famed Atelier 17 in Paris, run by British artist and teacher Stanley William Hayter.
