This piece “Romulo” is part of my Maharlika series in which I create portraits of notable historical and prominent current figures of the Philippine culture and heritage. This is to promote to the world further awareness of the Filipino people, holding dear to my heart, my culture to which I aim to promulgate through the use of my paintbrush, depicting noble figures who founded the Filipino people today.
This painting delineates the excellence and regality I seek to depict, through the illustration of Carlos P. Romulo, who was a Filipino diplomat, statesman, soldier, journalist and author; most notably known for being the Former President of the United Nations General Assembly.
I have used a multitude of painting techniques, using the bistre and grisaille underpainting method to build the structure of this piece, then evolving through intricate layers of glazes to achieve the perfect colour desired, alongside complex maneuvering of chiaroscuro to build the tonal value of the back ground and the foreground, adding a nice contrast to make the subject more multidimensional.

Without light there is no vision, but without colour there is no feeling. That is the essence of my creation, a guiding force to disinter beauty through the language of colours.
Having a multidimensional technique to discover various avenues which can bring life to a painting, may it be abstract or realism. I portray this in as many different styles as I can; portraiture, landscape, figurative, animal, still life, botanical, floral, and sports, to name a few that I currently delve into.
I’m a self-taught artist from London, starting a full-time professional artistic career in 2020, voraciously pursuing my aptitude for art and building the foundation for an extensive collection of creative works.
