I started to paint when my sister offered me a set of oil paints.When the owner of a local restaurant saw my work and offered to mount an exhibit, the show was a sold out.
I never stop creating art after that.
I was fortunately blessed by circumstances to cross the boundaries of multidisciplinary art.Extending to performance art,lecturer,workshop facilitator,curatorial obligations,organizer,cultural worker,graphic arts,and to my second choice,as a musician and songwriter.
Due to proximity from the Manila-the capital, art awareness is lacking.My home town has no art school,no art supply,no gallery.As an artist, it become a duty to evolve to such roles to promote the arts to the public.In 2002, I established an artists collective called CAFE-Collective Artists For the Environment which I run till the present.
In doing my method of work,I have a strong foundation in Realism and capable of creating non-representational lyrical abstractions in any given medium at the same time. I knew these two disciplines thrive at different level but I am attempting to combine the two to blurr its boundaries.
As an artist Living in a third world country,it offered me a rich source of stories that is not enough tofill the libraries.I explore diverse experiences and issues that affects an individual. The social climate isas complicated as climate change itself, which is at constant threat of culture commodification, identity crisis, economic turmoil, poverty, corruption, globalization,calamities and environmental destruction engaging us on collision course with our fate.
This is what my art is all about.
