Who are you?

I’m a development communication practitioner. I work as a writer and multimedia designer at the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity based in the Philippines. I’m responsible in the conceptualization, writing, designing and production of communication, education and public awareness materials of my organization. So, basically what I’m doing is applied arts, but when it comes to the arts (in the academic sense of the word), I don’t have any formal training. I’m just doing this as a hobby.
I don’t have a degree in fine art but I think I’m part of the digital era where people can freely express themselves using different art forms. Social media has made it easier for someone like me to be noticed. We all know that the art world is an elite arena but social media has democratized art and made it more accessible for everyone.

 

When did you start to do digital art?

I started doing digital art since 2008.

 

Why have you chosen digital art?

I’m a graphics designer so most of my works fall under digital art. My Mag+Art and Album+Art are more of digital collage/contemporary pop art.
 

A song you like ?

I’m a music fan and I appreciate almost all genres of music but I’m especially fond of Frank Sinatra, Jeff Buckley, Hall and Oates, Sting, and Stevie Wonder. Some of my favorite contemporary artists are Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Mayer Hawthorne, Miguel, and Adele. But my favourite song is Someone to Watch Over Me, especially the version of Sting.

 

An artist you like ?

I also have a lot of favorite painters such as Joan Miro, Picasso, the Pre-Raphaelites, Cranach, Klimt, Schiele, Matisse, Andy Warhol and a whole lot more.
