Venturing into other professions, he would always be led back to painting by many circumstances.

His talent and skills are honed by best mentors in the local and international art scene.

Rendered in the Tareptipism style, Jester’s Ball satirizes the harsh national reality, a satirical reflection of Philippine politics that is full of intrigues, seduction and mystery as symbolized by s seated sinister master. Jester in action, dancing mestizas surrounded by ball stereotypes under the dome of glittering gold.
