Space: Derek Tumala's Studio



'Derek Tumala deviates his art practice by creating works that transcend the intangible. Taking cues from futurism, science and technology, his visual approaches and conceptual derivatives convey an account of exploration, a tangible experience, a sensory reflection.



 He treats video as a form of light in which it transfigures an object’s state or form, fluidly altering it’s spatial nature.


 Light as an elusive medium challenges him to explore it’s possibilities, function, and form as he negotiates tangibility. 


As a multidisciplinary artist working on sculpture, light, video, new media, found objects, industrial materials, and performance, Tumala intersects media and technology into a singular field stimulating sensory perception. 



His first solo exhibition “Sacred Geometry” at Art Fair Philippines 2015 garnered a shortlist for the Ateneo Art Awards, a major emerging artist award in the Philippines; was also exhibited in Wei-LIng Gallery Malaysia and Ateneo Art Gallery Manila.'

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan http://pilipinastreetplan.blogspot.com/2009/03/tie-one-19791998-rip.html Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone  http://saberone.com/blog/2009/
