Excerpts From Reviews

"In the apollonarian spirit are the works of... Conrado Mercado. That is to say, their works appeal more to the mind than to the heart in terms of line and color. There is an intellectual scaffolding or underpinning in their works, although there may be a great deal of feeling in the use of colors. Another way of putting it is that these are thinking rather than feeling artist, cerebral rather than celebrational."

Leonidas V. Benesa, Museum Artists 1979, "Isms, Schools,Recurrent Themes & Terms in Philippine Contemporary Painting"


"His works come out strange but alive because of the ambiguity with which he describes them and monumental because of voluminousness and distortedness of treatment which even adds up to his fascination with life"

Philippine Daily Express, July 15, 1974
