Lorna Maza Fine Art: Beautiful Island of the Philippines

Lorna Maza primarily paints from life, from photographs or memories of an experience. For her, every subject she paints raises a call to a journey that doesn’t stop in the canvas. It all begun in the “Beautiful Islands of the Philippines.”

#LornaMaza #FineArt Beautiful Islad of the #Philippines www.jennysserendipity.com #Art #ArtPh #FilipinaArtist #Acrylic #AcryliconCanvas

Being based in Houston, Texas, Lorna still manages to convey her love of the country in her artworks. The rich cultural aspects of the rural life and a country blessed with a rich environment— lush forests, tropical islands, white sand beaches, lakes, rivers, mountains— and friendly, artistic and hardworking people who are always happy to welcome visitors and friends where she once lived resonate in all her compositions.

Lorna is drawn to memories of her home country where she paints to find and depict deeper meaning in all her subjects.  Her inspiration stems from how beautiful our country is echoing to reflect the grandeur and magnificence of an island by painting the simple way of what was her beloved life as shown in the warm green tones of her masterpieces.

Lorna had been a very active student, during her school days. She liked art contests, even winning places in some of them. Lorna has always been an art aficionado who loves to collect seemingly worthless items and upcycling them into unique works of art. She had collected fruit and vegetable seeds and dries them to be displayed into long empty bottles.

She has decorated their town home with her ingenuity with unimaginable and unique art works made from materials such as chocolate wrappers, used stamps, stones, strings, broken beads, and even crab shells.

Lorna Maza at UWAAP May 2015 Exhibit

Lorna is a crafter who sews and cross stitch, and has even designed some of her own dresses. She enjoys photography, dancing, singing and is quit a musician who plays the flute including playing the piano and organ.

Lorna Maza graduated from Saint Louis University in the Philippines with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Commerce, major in Banking and Finance. Lorna and her husband, Cyril, largely self-taught artists had never attended any painting classes, other than their art classes in elementary and high school. They both are designers and partners at CSM and LLDM Emporium.

Lorna participates in art exhibits and trunk shows in the Houston area. Last May 2015, Lorna took part in the United Women Artists Association of the Phils (UWAAP) exhibit in Manila.

Meet Sky De Leon Child Prodigy Painter

Meet #SkyDeLeon #ChildProdigy #Painter www.jennysserendipity.com #VisualArtist #FilipinoArtist #Art #ArtPH #ContemporaryArts #Impressionism #Realism

Artist at work who can paint one painting a day.

A rage to master as observed in some precocious young artists may help define extreme visual creativity in spotting artistic brilliance in children. Among all child prodigies there is one particular trait that children share: passion about their interest – whether it is in painting, sports, math, science or even dance.

Despite his young age, Ram Skyler De Leon or “Sky” has already distinguished himself as a professional artist. Sky can make one oil painting a day, his stress buster after school. I am passionate about art!” he enthuses. Shy is an artist who has an obsession to master his craft, devouring art books and religiously studying with local experts.

“It’s a great honor to be an artist. Art for me is not just a hobby but a passion. Painting became my escape and my inspiration to do well in school. We all live in a busy and complicated world but art simplifies it. God gave me this wonderful gift and my family has supported me throughout my journey in art. I hope to create more and better paintings or works of art in the future.”~Sky De Leon

Looking at kid’s compositions, it won’t take you much to conclude that he comprehends far beyond his age. His reflection about art, his brushstroke and mature demeanor across the canvas at such a tender age is certainly a gifted realist.  His elements of composition, color, space and movement are handled with greater sensitivity to detail.

The fifteen-year old boy’s paintings are no child’s play for this 2nd year high school honor student from La Salle Greenhills who started art as early as six years old.

Meet #SkyDeLeon #ChildProdigy #Painter www.jennysserendipity.com #VisualArtist #FilipinoArtist #Art #ArtPH #ContemporaryArts #Impressionism #Realism

Ram Skyler de Leon and Master Artist, Fernando Sena at Walls Gallery

He first studied art basics with acclaimedFernando Sena in 2010 and had several exhibits through him, in venues including Philippine Heart Center, Eastwood Cinema in Libis, and Walls and Art Gallery in Quezon Avenue while contemporary Filipino artist Philip Badon has also helped in shaping Sky’s art.

His comprehensive art education and as well as his exposure to numerous art forms, styles and techniques, finds niche in realism and impressionism through L’arc En Ciel Gallery who is now Sky’s second home in art – a leading art gallery in the country under the tutelage of Elaine Herbosa curator of the L’Arc en Ciel in the South. Sky has also been accepted to the Florence Academy of Art in Italy for next year’s workshop – first Filipino child to be accepted in this prestigious academy.

Sky with Elaine Herbosa, President and Curator of L’Arc En Ciel Art Gallery.

He wields a brush like an art master. His skill in the impressionist still life is a sight to behold – his copper vases, sunflowers and cherries on white silk organza pop to life with his sophisticated strokes. Sky’s oils in bold colors have unending appeal.

Sky was not like most children as he found solace frolicking with vivid colors and various subjects in his paintings. Sky is an artist whose art are often self-directed, preferring art to other forms of entertainment. Sky believes that creating art in general is not an activity but a way of life for him. It teaches him discipline, courage to go beyond his limits, and to aim for perfection for whatever interest him.

“Still life teaches you to find the beauty in simple household objects and portraiture makes you enjoy the perfection of the in perfection,” ~Sky De Leon

Sky has been publicly exhibiting his works since he was 11 years old, starting at the Bahay Tsinoy Museum in Intramuros. He had a solo auction exhibit for the 10th anniversary of The Palms Country Club in Alabang in 2013, where part of the proceeds went to a charitable institution. He has joined Art in the Park two years in a row, ManiaArt 2015, and exhibits in Bellevue Hotel, Tagaytay Highlands, ArtistSpace, Ayala Museum and at L’Arc en Ciel Atelier and Gallery in Ayala Alabang Village.

His rare talent has been featured as Artist of the Week in Solar TV’s morning show, interviewed in other TV programs, and featured in newspapers and magazines. Sky is, after all, just a typical, well-rounded extraordinary talented kid with supportive non-artist parents. His oil paintings have evolved into a more mature depictions and advanced techniques.

“I love what I am doing. It’s very satisfying, seeing a finished work when before there was just a blank canvas,” ~Sky De Leon

The Whimsical Art of Buhay Mendoza

#Art #WhimsicalArt #WhimsicalPaintings #WhimsicalArtworks #FantasyArt by #BuhayMendoza, #FilipinoArtist #ArtPh www.jennysserendipity.comWhimsical art is an effervescent and playful that is unique, out-of-the-ordinary, or fanciful. This type of art is commonly associated with children’s book illustrations and fairy tale art, which aims to lifts the spirit and makes you happy. Whimsical artwork might be characterized by its color, design, line, or subject matter. Whimsical paintings are usually bright and colorful, and their subject matter is sometimes humorous.

Many artists identify with being called “whimsical” because of their philosophy. They want to create images that are playful, cheerful, and carefree which aims to make the viewer smile or laugh, or look at the world around them in a different way. A whimsical artist is a person with great imagination, very intuitive and a child at heart.

Dwight-Buhay or simply “BUHAY” is a Filipino artist who turns everyday people into whimsical figures. BUHAY’s whimsical art is a childlike glimpse into his over-active imagination. These creatures are endearing yet enigmatic, and the same time – odd, crisscrossing the threshold between fantasy and reality. Many of his whimsical creatures contain a quiet tranquility, thoughtful in their own odd ways. His art is restrained, still, and yet, meditative in nature. They often bear a telling gaze, as if they can see something that we don’t. Their eyes are always wide and their lips are sealed.

Buhay’s methodological execution brings this idea to the audience even when the psychological aspects may remain covert to the viewer. The means whereby all of us arbitrate the world in which we live are intellectual and emotional. An intellectual response is learned; whereas emotion is inherent and Buhay’s work is a trajectory of both characteristics, and through these it brings the honesty of life from his paintings.

Whimsical Art By Buhay Mendoza – Tittle : The Golden Heart Bearer . Oil on Canvas. (61 x 61 cm ) 2014.

He distinctly transfers his subjects into canvases to tell a story in hopes that they will touch others too. Though Buhay is primarily self-taught, he began to develop his painting skills and further enhanced his overall artistic abilities through the guidance of renowned artists. He draws inspiration from Impressionist masters such as Edouard Monet, Edgar Degas, Paul Cezanne, Frederic Bazille and Morgan Weistling. His primary source of inspiration; however, lies in the wing of renowned artist Sir Fernando B. Sena who he had formal training with.

#Art #WhimsicalArt #WhimsicalPaintings #WhimsicalArtworks #FantasyArt by #BuhayMendoza, #FilipinoArtist #ArtPh www.jennysserendipity.com

The artist uses a variety of mediums in his artwork including oils, acrylics, watercolour and pastels. His primary subjects are the human figures; it fascinates him to express a person’s character through lines, lights and shadows. His genre is more on Expressionism, Impressionism and Realism.

Buhay as he’s known by his contemporaries from Tuesday Group and Art Association of the Philippines as a hardworking artist with the passion for the craft that immerses deeply as he began to embrace the life of being a full-time artist.  Buhay simply believes that while one doesn’t always begin one’s working life as an artist, one can nevertheless be born an artist. As in his case, it sometimes takes years of various jobs before one attains the possibility of dedicating life to art. As a youth, survival priorities barred even the thought of artistic inclination.

#Art #WhimsicalArt #WhimsicalPaintings #WhimsicalArtworks #FantasyArt by #BuhayMendoza, #FilipinoArtist #ArtPh www.jennysserendipity.comBuhay has made Deparo, Caloocan City his home a move from his native town – Calauag, Quezon.  He worked as a Graphic Artist/ Illustrator for 5 years in which he worked on mock ups, backdrops, and miniature props for movies and commercials. Currently, he has a studio in Caloocan where his creative mind works and flourishes. You can view his artwork in Art Verite Gallery in Ayala Museum.

Margarita Lim: Filipina Painter & Watercolorist

Watercolor artist Margarita Lim was not a Fine Arts graduate; she was actually an accidental artist who attended an art workshop to help her get over the death of her husband.  During her healing process, she prayed and was guided by her art mentors to join the Kulay sa Tubig watercolor invitational competition.  She was a runner up on her first try and won 3 times and was awarded top 5 and elevated to the Hall of Fame, last December 2014.

As an artist, one strives to show that the ostensibly delicate medium of watercolor can be bold, rich in color and dramatic in execution.  When she paints, she aims to understand and see its beauty and simplicity within its complexity. Her paintings capture the very core of her subject and the viewer’s find themselves lost in the world she has created. Her watercolor paintings express a unique way to creatively represents illusions, expressions, and bright feelings.

When she paints, it is not about what you see at first glance it is more about the emotional connection she brings out whenever she chooses an art subject. Her form is the language, the content is the voice. As every artist, they are here to share their gifts with others; it is a valuable healing experience for her and the observer and her art is what she is born to do. She also does dabble in acrylic but her main medium of choice is watercolor.

Her mentors influenced her to do watercolors.

“Thanks to you Henry when I saw you painting a watercolor portrait, you challenged me to excel in watercolor. The 3 persons who influenced me to do watercolor are Boy Ventura, Rody Herrera & you (Henry Braulio); wouldn’t be here without you guys,” the artist laments.

A resident of Pasig City, Philippines, Lim garners much of her inspiration from the Lord and her fellow artists at the Art Association of the Philippines,” where she currently seats as the secretary of the art organization. She was also chosen as one of the KATORSE Ab Initio group of Filipina artists carving out a space for themselves, dedicated to the craft of visual arts. In a short given time, they were able to organize a group exhibit at Arte Pintura Gallery at the Address Condominium WackWack Road last June 17, 2015. She is at present holding a show at the “Junkshop” Exhibit at Art Center, SM Megamall from Oct 9th to 20th of 2015.

Psychic Chasms: The Art of Iya Consorio-Barrioquinto

There’s no denying it, surreal art dolls can have a macabre side. However, dolls of today represent mystical perfection but also a lifeless beauty which is why dolls have such wonderful representation in the surrealistic art world–they tend to taunt that perfect balance between desire and repulsion.

Iya Consorio dolls are full of surrealism and mysticism which gives viewers a glimpse of the artist’s bizarre doll’s dream world. Her collection of surreal images on round canvasses that look like glass windows overlooking that strange parallel world which is a characteristic of Iya’s art that evokes swirls of magic, spells and potions.

For her eighth solo exhibition at ArtistSpace at the Ayala Museum, Iya Consorio presented Psychic Chasms—a collection of paintings that mostly portrayed a child-woman with an octopus body called Eiko.

 “Psychic Chasms brings us to the brink of Eiko’s world. She is a woman-child from without; a child from within, a woman who has lived so much. And from without, she dreams to be loved from within, she wants to love—the child bride awaits.”

In Eiko’s exquisite detailing of half a dozen-eyed doll with tentacles for limbs will give viewers the chance to catch the art subject staring at blank space introspecting or day-dreaming in her glorious octopus-human hybrid form. She maybe then the alter-ego of the artist, keen on everything with her multiple eyes yet alienated from the rest of the world.

Art lovers recall seeing the mystical Eiko for the first time in this year’s Art Fair Philippines where Consorio’s 40 pieces of sculpture were displayed at the booth of Secret Fresh. Collectors tried to get their hands on the limited edition designer toy called “Evening Dress,” sadly many were not able to. This also happened at Consorio’s most recent art exhibit where her masterpieces were again sold out.

Iya Consorio earned her degree in Fine Arts from the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. She has joined in various group exhibitions and has mounted several solo exhibitions with established art galleries in the metro such as West Gallery, Secret Fresh, VoV and Art Underground. She has also exhibited at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and the BenCab Museum.

Jonathan Benitez: Mixed Media Collage Art and Environmental Art

 “My art narrates the relationship between man and nature, his fragility and impermanence.”

With the belief that the artist must train not only his eye but also his soul. “I always absorb new knowledge and information through various media. With the advent of internet, it’s now easier to get information about anything related to my art. I am a believer of new theories and disciplines in art,” as Jonathan Benitez points out about his uniqueness as a visual artist.

His guiding principle is to answer the question: “how can I express the spirit of this age?”

His strong obsession with figures and how they are affected by economic turmoil, poverty, corruption, globalization, natural calamities, and environmental serves as inspiration for his work. Together with his hometown’s plush vegetation—inhabited with greeneries and wildlife made him realized how happy he is living in harmony with the beauty of nature and man.

As the artist confers, it’s hard to prophesized how they will survive as each is consuming the other. His aim is to offer the viewers an alternative point of view to an art experience while showing the delicacies of human conditions and the effects of their behavior on life’s impermanence and fragility.

Benitez collage is a discourse on advertising whose single handiness aspiration is to capture the minds of the viewer by showing a false truth—to express questions of circumstances, displacement and obscured identity, what better platform could there be than the nature of assemblage in collage? Figurative artifacts are laid bare while debatable situations construct parallel universes. The mundane falls in rhythm with the offbeat bordered in conscious composition such as vivid yet surreal landscapes are employed at the hands of the artist.

His first foray in the arts was when he was 10; he came across Vicente Manansala’s watercolor on watercolor paper, “Candle Vendors,” at the back cover of a 1982 issue of Readers Digest—the structured composition and the semi-figurative method of the neutral colors made the depiction honest and truthful. All these hit Benitez hard in a semi-conscious way. Instantaneously, he turned Manansala as his art icon. With an uncle tutoring him on the techniques of watercolor painting and charcoal drawing, Benitez tried to capture the National Artist’s indigenous cubism style as they vividly echoed the Filipino experience.

Primarily interested in becoming an Engineer, Jonathan Benitez left his course to pursue art after her elder sister gifted him with oil paints. Born in Iligan City, Mindanao and now a Puerto Princesa native is pure talent and resourcefulness, noted for taking everyday objects and integrating them in his inceptions to make up for lack of available materials.

Seb Chua is a sculptor who strives to capture the rightest quintessence of the subject at hand through affirmative messages such as love, care and family values for everyone to see. His cast sculptures, whether in bronze, marble or brass are an evolution against the backdrop of art through history.

His pursuit of art is a means of human expression of varied influences with themes that show a distinctly modern cubistic nature and metaphorical composition of shapes and forms. The faceless portraits—the anonymity and sole identity of Seb Chua’s works represent humanity so that the viewer can narrate as the character within the artwork.
