Reviews, Interviews and News

Pacita Abad attracted people’s attention, not only for her bold, colorful paintings, but also her vibrant laughter, exotic dress, and the outrageously frank things that she would say. The media was also drawn to Pacita and her paintings, but were not always sure how to react to her work, what she said, and who she was. However, very few understood her focused dedication to painting, and the way she passionately worked away in her studio, with her music blasting until late into the night and sometimes the early morning.
