Angelo Antonio Maristela is a multidimensional international Filipino artist who has secured himself a spot in the highly competitive world of arts. His works are recognised for excellence and he has won awards on several painting competitions which includes being one of the finalists in the Philip Morris Art Awards.

Angelo can bring a lifeless object to life. He is a gifted natural hyper-realist painter and has gainedmastery in the art of portrait making.  Angelo’s style can accommodate different requirements—from abstracts, impressionism to realism; marrying a vast range of hues and figures on his canvas for his corporate and commercial projects in the Philippines, USA and Qatar.

Based in Doha Qatar since 2009, his wonderful art works now hang in some of the most exclusive residential and commercial villas across the city and the Pearl, Qatar. His latest abstract series iscurrently being showcased at Bilal Pearl Suites, a 7-star residential haven at Pearl Qatar.  While some of his hyper-realism artworks are gracing the interiors of Sizzling Hotpot, a newly-opened Asian restaurant in the Holiday Villa Hotel.

His artworks have been gaining popularity in the country and overseas and have been featured for a number of times in popular Qatari magazines and Angelo has been interviewed on Qatar TV. He has showcased his works in international exhibitions including the Art Encounter in Las Vegas, Nevada, the largest gallery in the state to join their dynamic roster of artists. He has also been invited to an exhibit in the Philippine Center, New York back in 2006. In September, he has two exhibitions that will be happening simultaneously—one in Biennale 2015, Italy and in Katara– at the exclusive and only Cultural Village in Doha, Qatar.

This artist’s ultimate vision is to leave a lifetime legacy to preserve the culture and events through his timeless paintings for the next generations to appreciate and enjoy.

Kenjay Reyes is a 17 year old architectural student who loves to dabble in illustration, specifically in doodle art design. He has done several commissions for various companies and has showcased at art exhibits held in different parts of the world such as Indonesia, UK, Philippines and Malaysia. He is an active member of the biggest doodling community in the Philippines-DAE (Doodle Art Enthusiast).

Due to his fondness in doodling, he has been featured on Artfido.com which gave him a huge break to pursue the arts further. He is also into murals, collaboration works, water colour painting, portraiture and editorial cartooning. Moreover, his interest in digital arts has become a way for him to enhance his ability and furtherly challenge himself to make complex animation designs.

Fortunately, he has been chosen as a contributing artist for Paradox: The Art of Editorial Cartooning, Doodle Arts Magazine and as a cartoonist for several Campus Newspapers in his hometown. Kenjay was a remarkable achiever in high school and he was appointed the Salutatorian of his batch who received hundreds of art-related and academic awards. At this young age, Kenjay wishes to inspire everyone around the world and at this point in his life he is still curious about how he can reach the world with a blot of ink on a blank paper.

Aura Magazine: Meet the Art Man – Filipino Artist Jerome Choco

AURA Magazine 3rd Issue is out!

My third contribution – Meet the Art Man – Filipino Artist Jerome Choco. (Pages 46-47) Thank you Dee Sanchez and Miguel Livelo.

Jerome “Art Man” Choco is a young and highly talented natural-born Filipino artist who hails from Angono, Rizal—“The Art Capital of the Philippines.” Jerome uses all mediums but his specialty is on realism, hyperrealism, and 3D art.  With almost 95K followers on Facebook, he is someone to watch out for in the years to come.

His Discovery Series intermittently depict stories embedded from his childhood dreams.  In his dreams, the Art Man aims to obtain supernatural powers.  Though his clever manipulation of folk aesthetic and material. Art Man’s provides his illusory characters with emblematic significance that transcends common discernment, offering new insights about their origins and relevance.  His self-discovery series in his art reveals the dream of his artistic impression on longing for his truest calling.  It can be a vision that we all need to look for things that is wrong and destructive in nature but in the end one flies away from trouble and learns from the experience.

Princess Margaret is a self-taught artist, business owner, art teacher, and an active member of Art Association of the Philippines and Pinoy na Pinoy Visual Artists Association, Inc. since 2014.

She may be new in the art world, but art is a great part of her life.

She sees her talent as a blessing than a skill as she is a co-owner with her best friend (Janis Khiong) of a small art-school—Artventure Art Center for children and those with special needs.

“Artventure believes that art has the capacity to engaging the youth regardless of physical, emotional or developmental abilities one step at a time. It has power and wisdom beyond words.”

Art education is essential to the development of the whole child. Artventure provides art with so much heart.

****

ART JOURNEY

She sees this creative journey as a spiritual one to commune with God, express, inspire, and be enlightened to deeper self-discovery and continuous transformation.

As she listens to the creator within, her faith gives sight as she is her own muse and therefore, is allowed to nurture her artistic creativity.

And the longer she spends time on making art, the more she realizes that mood has nothing to do with creating beautiful works of art.

“It really comes and flows freely deep from the heart and soul, and the spirit playing the most part. This creative gift leads me to truth and love. And I am always willing to learn, grow and let the spirit create through me as I do all things with so much love and peace,” she quotes.

Thank you Princess Margaret!!

I will never forget what you said, “If it is meant for me, it will never miss me.”

Continue your artistic prowess. You are extremely talented and a rising sunshine to many!!!
