Pelipada was born on October 8, 1958 and resides in Malolos, Bulacan. He opened up a framing business around 1920’s and became President Ramos’ framer in Malacañang Palace. In 2000 he decided to be a full-time artist because he was inspired by Ang Kiukok’s works. His signature style includes cool and vibrant color tones with people who have their heads turned sideways in a marketplace-like environment. He is part of Bulacan Bahagahri Inc., where he honed his artistic skills.
