Elito V. Circa

Elito V. "Amangpintor" Circa was born on 28 January 1970. Elito V. Circa is a famous Filipino folk painter.

Elito V. Circa was born in Pantabangan, Nueva Ecija in the Philippines and began painting at the age of ten. His hometown was permanently flooded in his early childhood to give way to the construction of a dam. His family was relocated to higher ground, where he could see the belfry of the town's 18th-century church resurface when the reservoir water level fell each summer. These events influenced his later work.
