El simpatico Jhoan is a newcomer to Manille’s art scene, dahlings. He presented a series of eclectic images that had art collectors buying up his artworks.

Looking at Jhoan’s work, one would notice the undeniable strength, vitality, energy and emotion of his subjects, as well as the culture of his native country.

Life, through the eyes of the artists, gives viewers a window to a whole new world and allows them to see the beauty in every human experience.

“They truly expand your horizons and make your wisdom more profound.”

Edward Garcia with author Maurice Arcache

“I am astounded by the whole range of what life is all about depicted by the artists and their works. They mirror life in all its joys and sorrows, and I become a better person because of the profound message that they reveal,” said top collector and art lover Dr. Joven Cuanang, palanggas.
