Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Painted on Saguran (raffia) fabric. Unlike the traditional canvas and other linen, Saguran is handwoven in the Philippines, from the fibers of young leaf sheaths of the Buri palm. The varying widths and thickness of each strand, the knots in random spots, and the loose open weave, lend to its coarse surface and rich dimensional depth.

Framed: 26.5 x 51.5 inches
Unframed: 25 x 50 inches

Artist Profile

Hometown: New York City

Based in: New York City

Job Tibay is a Filipino-American artist who works on Saguran (Raffia) fabric. Living thousands of miles away from the Philippines inspired him to find a substrate that would allow him to stay connected to his roots. Instead of the traditional canvas, he decided to work on saguran, which is handwoven from the young leaf sheaths of the buri palm (a 100% eco-friendly material) by artisan weavers from the Philippines. This allows him to celebrate his heritage while continuing to explore new grounds and horizons without ever losing touch with the place he first called home.

Job completed his masters in Fine & Decorative Arts and Design at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in New York City, and currently lives with his wife Melissa in Union City, New Jersey.
