Onib Olmedo (July 7, 1937 - September 8, 1996) was an award-winning expressionist Filipino painter. He illustrated The Body Book (1993) by Gilda Cordero-Fernando. He created populist art and depicted the marginalized part of the society. In 1970, he decided to shift from is 12-year career in architecture to painting where he became a leading figure in Philippine expressionism.
