Winner Jumalon (b.1983, Philippines)

"Award winning artist Winner Jumalon (b. 1983) has garnered international acclaim and following for his intricate, yet rugged brand of art. Infusing into his works implicit elements with strong subliminal context, Jumalon’s figurative style bears with it a scathing potency —emotionally tapping into his viewers’ subconscious.
His multi award-winning oil works have been reputed for his genius approach to his subjects. His portraiture — highly detailed, rugged, and brilliantly infused with implicit semantic — questions the formation of identity itself. His use of the human figure bears such powerful qualities, speaking in deep context beyond their aesthetic sensibilities."
