He is included in the "100 Artists of the Philippines" published by the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Century of Realism by Manuel Duldulao, Art Asia and the Pacific in Hong Kong, Philippine Art Now and the Encyclopedia of Philippine Art.

Working in a realist-impressionist style, his paintings are noted for his chiaroscuro technique and the dramatic interplay of light descending in a near-divine manner. Coupled with buildings and structures of a distinguished antiquity, he conveys the graces of the old world.

Melencio is a renowned Filipino Artist who hails from the historic province of Bataan in the Philippines. Melencio’s power comes from the light, which descends in near-divine manner. Coupled with traditional Vigan structures and the inner wonders of nature, he conveys the graces of the old world. A visionary dreamer and a prolific artist, his work extends beyond Philippine shores into the International Global Village. Because of his humble beginnings, he chooses to remain the people’s artist.
