Artist Reception: July 14th | 4-7:00pm
Jun started to draw when he was five years old and painting became a hobby while growing up. Jun is an accountant and a self-taught artist at the same time - primarily by brooding over art books and magazines, visiting art museums and galleries. He moved to Stockton, CA from the Philippines in 1995 and settled down with his equally talented wife, Ela, and two children. He is a regular at the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery and the Art Expressions of San Joaquin and does art commission work, including large mural projects. He was being represented by the Agora Gallery in New York City and was part of a group exhibition in July 2015. He was selected as one of the 60 Master Artists of Modern Art for 2016 by the Art Tour International Magazine, a prestigious and award-winning magazine for the art world with the artists’ awarding ceremony/exhibition conducted in Montagnac, France. He was featured in the spring and summer 2016 editions of Art Tour International Magazine widely distributed all around the world.
Jun has also painted live on stage, and off-stage to the inspiration of music especially by Christian artists. Jun has worked with churches and ministries. He has also graced the stage for fundraisers, conferences, musical concerts and various non-profit organizations. He conducts regular art workshops for beginners and advanced painters of all ages. His instruction is sought for in various art and sip events at local wineries and private parties. He has started also a career in book illustrating in 2017 and his first professionally published illustrations for a previously published author came out at the end of 2017.
