From the enigmatic portraits of Demi Padua to the abstract narratives of Pepe Delfin and Clarence Chun’s biographical explorations, each artist brings a unique perspective to the canvas, leaving viewers mesmerized and inspired.

A Closer Look at the Featured Artists

Demi Padua, a rising star in the contemporary art scene, is renowned for his captivating portraits.

Pepe Delfin utilizes the language of abstraction to explore a world of emotions and experiences. Through a captivating interplay of geometric shapes, squiggles, and lines, each meticulously placed element weaves a visual narrative. Delfin’s vibrant hues and structured compositions create scenes that evoke a sense of solitude and a kaleidoscope of emotions.

Clarence Chun employs abstraction as a tool to tell stories of his personal connections and relationships with the places he’s called home. Water plays a prominent role in his work, a reflection of his childhood spent in Leyte and his current life in Hawaii. Chun’s pieces offer a glimpse into his journey as a first-generation immigrant, weaving biographical narratives into his captivating visuals.
