i've been organizing my computer files for the last 3 days, and i found some interesting pictures of previous pieces dating at least 4-6 years ago. its amazing how i really toned down on using straight from tube color palette in contrast to pastel like, earthy, flat color palette of previous pieces. the first piece is acrylic paint, paper cutouts , matte medium, fabric softener aerosol and marker on wood panel. the 2nd piece is water color, and pigment pen on paper. the third piece is done using acrylic paint, aerosol, markers, and sand paper on framed plastic sign. the fourth piece is aerosol paint, acrylic paint, markers, fake american express credit card, and gel medium on wood. the last piece is an assemblage of wooden materials painted using acrylic paint, aerosol, markers, paper collage and card boards. enjoy!

Pugot--from Tabi-Tabi Po Art Show

Here's some of the body of work i recently submitted at the Tabi-Tabi Po Art Show in San Francisco, dedicated to Filipino folklore and mythology. The title of the body of work is called "Pugot". The Pugot ("decapitated one") is a mythical creature that is found in the Ilocos region in the northern part of the Philippines. It can assume various shapes such as hogs, dogs or even as humans. However, it usually appears as a black, gigantic headless being. The creature usually resides in dark places or deserted houses. For more info about the exhibit check out: http://1amsf.com/

Some New Stuff

here are some stuff that i have been working on for the upcoming solo show at beat rock in long beach. the show will be comprised of materials dating from 2007-present. i've been really exploring the potentiality of mixing dry and wet mediums. its interesting how the two reacts when another medium is applied such as aerosol paint, or just plain water. they leave such interesting marks on the surface and as an artist, you learn how to adapt and take advantage of the magic of the process. enjoy.

Work on Progress

as an artist, i think that the most important part of art making is the process, which in turn i believe determines the outcome of the work. and as an example, my process ussually starts by focusing on one form which i then cut, twist, strectch, add, subtract, obsessively exploring the form's potentials. the form then determines the content or the meaning of the work. here are some body body of work with different degrees of completion. the following are done using acrylic paint, le pen (this pen is the shit), water color, and pigment liner pen!
