This painting was inspired by the song "Behind the Sun" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In the distant you can see silhouetted whales bleeding out as a undertone of mans destructiveness. "He looked to me eyes full of love" referring to the dolphin looking upon the human in the astronaut suit, symbolizing the curiosity and childlike nature of our race, with compassion, forgiveness and unconditional love. Their hearts symbolize the connection as living creatures and that we are the same.
This piece in spring 2015 placed First in Painting in the Bosque Gallery at Lonestar-Cyfair Community College.
Born to a American father and Filipino mother in Houston, Texas then raised in the Philippines for most of my childhood. I now live in Denver, Colorado with my girlfriend and two pet rats where I work and go to school as a art major. Some of my current interest include my cultural heritage, living with Dyslexia, the different states of consciousness. I am inspired by the styles of surreal and visionary art. I work in a variety of mediums: painting in acrylic and oils, drawing, photography, video, and digital graphics. The arts has always been a part of my life. I've been drawing since I was two years old. While attending Clear Springs High school I was in the Theatre Tech program for two years and the Audio/Video program for three years. I began experimenting with photography around that time too. Telling a story though a camera, on the stage and working with a film crew captured my imagination. I went to college first as a Film major but I switched to a Art major after finding myself gravitating to explore other forms of visual arts to play more with other mediums to express and in turn learn more. Award: In spring 2015 I placed First in Painting in the Bosque Gallery at Lonestar-Cyfair Community College. You can see more of my work on my website: and email me at: email@example.com
