My art is like more than expressing myself, and not just to impress others. I live to paint, and I love the business side of it. So if you add "paint" and me, you'll get a nice PAINT-TING.

Q&A with Ting Mas

  • Why do you create art?

    I love creating art because it also proves to be a great source of income, especially now there's a pandemic. Making art a source of income is different from making art a hobby, a luxury I never had. I think art has always been in my family's bloodline because my brother also does art, and my four-year-old kid always messes with my paint and brush. I also remember that I was even awarded “Best in Drawing” when I was a young student.

  • What does your art aim to say?

    My artworks explore futuristic themes, and I also dabble in different subjects. I also always put some alien-related elements that are hardly noticeable. I believe we're not alone in this universe and yesterday was a lie. That has always been my hidden message, and I think most people are not ready for that, so I hide it in my works.

  • Why do you make this type of art?

    I'm an experimental artist. I want to have a signature style and technique, so what is not there is what I'm eyeing for. For now, I'm using a putty knife in my abstractions, which is dissimilar from a palette knife. So I use the former in a different approach. It all started when I joined an art competition and saw an old putty knife--I experimented using it, and it worked! I always use acrylic paint because first it's cheaper, and it dries fast. I'm also using putty cement to emboss my subjects--it's like painting and sculpturing at the same time.

  • What were some of the challenges you faced as an artist?

    When I'm in doubt about what I'm doing, I will reread a personal message that says, “Ituloy mo ang pagpinta, Magaling ka,” which came from Ambassador Rosario Manalo, a renowned art collector. Reading his words casts off all the doubts—just like that!

  • Shout-out to FilipinoArt:

    I'm thankful to FilipinoArt. I have joined several online galleries but never sold a painting—except here! Thank you for giving us, Filipino artists, the opportunity. Mabuhay po kayo!
