What subject or themes interest you when creating your art?
What kind of message or emotion are you trying to convey with your art?
I’ve been following your account for a long while now and have seen that you go back and forth between the Philippines and the US. How did that come to be? Any plan on being a travelling artist where you live in different locations every year?
You also have a number of mural works, how did you become interested in that field? Was it something that you’ve always wanted to do or was doing mural works a decision that came out of the blue?
What do you like about being a muralist? What do you dislike about it?
So far with the murals I’ve done it’s mostly been inside people’s homes and mostly their bedrooms, so I really love having the chance to get to know the people who live in the space – those who would be interacting with the wall everyday. Just having the time to be with them as I paint their wall really helps me understand different people more and that is very interesting to me. It is the interaction and the friendships with people that is the most rewarding and it’s fun to see their reactions from the beginning all the way to the end of the whole painting process. The process for me is important and being able to have them partake in that is really rewarding.
