Joey Agbayani, Manila Member Since August 2013 Artist Statement "I am a filmmaker. I do matte paintings, traditional and 3D CGI animation, graphic visual effects, cinematography, and photography. Painting is my most favorite art form. Compared to film production, making paintings has practically no budget constraints and there is so much creative freedom. A blank piece of canvas excites me- I can create anything that I wish to create."
"My interest in painting began at the age of 10. I remember using watercolor- copying photographs from travel books. I learned painting through the rendering classes at the University of the Philippines (UP) College of Architecture, workshops at the UP College of Fine Arts, and from reading art books. I have created several watercolor, oil and acrylic paintings in the past. Now, I have adapted a new style by combining the impasto technique with the use of modeling paste, and watercolor washes, glazing and dry brush techniques."
