FILIPINO ARTIST Jericho Windsor Magnaye
Jericho’s painting is just like magic, which he also does. The moment of enchantment starts as you weave your brush with paint in a blank canvas.

Jericho is a 31-year old fellow who hails from Manghinao, Bauan, Batangas. Attended college in Batangas State University with a degree in Fine Arts Major in Advertising; he worked in Keppel as Quality Control Staff member in Blasting Painting. Surprisingly though, Jericho is a Close Up and Street Magician who likewise tested the waters of Saudi Arabia as a magician and artist decorator. Currently, he is a full-time Visual Artist.
Because he has become a Street Magician, he finds it really interesting to include in his every work his fondness of being out there in the streets as a wanderer and artist. An achiever in his own right, he has captured his target market with the right creative tools that make him really stand out from the rest in the same field.
Jericho recounts that he enjoy painting streets and the stories and mysteries behind them. To him, there is a joy in discovering any busy street in the metropolis. While others are busy with there daily lives, the artist Jericho sit back, relaxes and takes ( the street activity) in the moment, observing, listening and learning. He further tells that “people in the street have different stories to tell. You never run out of subject to paint. He further states that “ Art allows him to travel to far and unknown palces.” He enjoys the serendipity o travel and doesn’t mind where it leads him. To him, there is always an element of surprise or the unexpected. His somewhat pixelated art style of the streets remind us how to look at art from different perspective. He says, sometimes you look too close that you fail to see the whole picture. There is a story envolving in the street at any time in the day.

The magic unfolds as you weave colors and patterns in a painting until you reach completion. Just like being a magician, constant practice develops his self-confidence and mastery of the craft. Performing magic tricks allows him to be in constant attention of people and to keep an eye on perfection. In both painting and magic, you have to amuse your audience. Art like magic is an escape from reality at times.
He calls his oeuvres Kalye or Street Art because that’s the story he wants to tell. He sees beauty in chaos and disorganization. One of his favorite subjects is the tricycle, which makes travel for him and for everyone faster and accessible. It also acts as his mental transport to imaginary places he’s never been.
