Images Asia Feature | 2016 May - June Issue

This 2016, I had the very great pleasure of being a part of the Images Asia personalities roster for article features on their international publication. The brainchild of Ernest Gonzaga from the Philippines, Images Asia has worked with the likes of Luis 'Chavit' Singson (featured in the previous month's issue), Jetsun Pema; the Queen of Bhutan (our cover feature), and many more notable figures from across the Philippines and whole of Asia.

It was an enjoyable and light-hearted session when we did the photography required for the magazine, as Mr. Gonzaga and lead photographer Ronin Urbina were down-to-earth and very accommodating to our group. We spent a great part of the afternoon having good conversations about modern life and the current situation of our country with regards to the elections and political personas vying for the presidential role.

The shoot itself was professionally done, as it was a joy to work with the entire Images Asia Team and their production staff. My great thanks to the set-up catered by their preparation team- the lighting equipment was also full-on and beautifully arranged for all of us.

Sculpture has been one of the most defining practices of my life so far, with most of the media coverage featuring a center focus on my artworks in stand-alone fashion. This time's featurette was more of a look into my life growing up, from my highschool years at Xavier, into college life at the Ateneo de Manila, and eventually onwards to the upcoming progression of my plans as a modern sculptor and entrepreneur.

Looking back into the past, I realize that I'm actually very blessed and thankful for the people in my life who have taken great care of me through their support and friendship. My family is also an incredibly supportive one, full of role models in many different ways. Hopefully one day I can repay the kindness and love shown to me by these people.

Images Asia Feature | 2016 May - June Issue
I'm a modern sculptor who circles around the possibility of creating contemporary beauty through fluid, smoothened curvatures of the human form. I have a craving for the elusive impact that abstract art can sometimes convey through its magnificent renderings of the human conditions. Once in a blue moon, I also tend to sleeptalk.
