Anton’s artistic inclination was greatly in influenced by his late father, Tony Mahilum. A renowned artist from Antipolo City, Anton is the youngest son in a family of artists, with two older brothers who are also painters.
Anton began to paint nature inspired sceneries that depict simplicity in the rural life. Subjects he preferred were small streams and rivers where carefree children play. A sense of the cool and calm are his choice of colors, rendered in realist style.
The fine evolution of the artist is greatly seen in his current works where the use of bold, iridescent colors highly contrast his subjects and themes that create a distinct style that is modern and traditional.
