Our Current Condition is the second year of Fortuna Circuit, an annual exhibition featuring artists from all around the Philippines. To give more detail on the artists and their work, we've decided to feature a few interviews with the exhibitors.
What art piece(s) are you bringing to the exhibit? What’s the story behind it?
“ Inner Aggression”and“Enough to go around”
What school of art do you follow? Who are your influences?
I guess I‘d say, it’s more on the realism side? But it does adapt into different styles,
depending on what is required. I have a multitude of influences actually but the few that really made an impact on my art are Frank Frazetta, Adam Hughes, Kim Jung Gi, and Alphonse Mucha.
What’s your art process? Do you have any habits or practices that you do before making a piece (eg taking a walk, or drinking beer before painting)?
I’m not sure if I have any. I just do it. But it has to be a good idea.
Where do you want your art to take you? Where do you see yourself and your art in the future?
I don’t know, I haven’t really thought about that.
Advice to budding artists out there.
Just do it. And keep on doing it. There are no shortcuts to getting good at your craft.
