Paintings by Jireh Brian Dimalanta
My name is Brian and I’m a 17 years old artist from the Philippines. When I was a child I never really had a passion for arts but back in 2014 when I was just 14 years old, a fateful encountered happened when I saw a 5 tubes set of Daler Rowney Georgian Oil Paint on our local stationery. I was wondering why would five tubes of paint be so expensive and because of my curiosity and I bought it without knowing that those five tubes of paint would push me so far into the art world.
One of the greatest challenge that I’m facing right now is that there are only few ateliers that teaches the classical method and even if there are some I can’t afford. I always wanted to enroll in a traditional art class because I wanted to learn the sophisticated and disciplined way of painting of the masters and I am sure that with the Old Masters academy and their passion to share their knowledge in arts, I will be able to achieve such level of expertise.
I really hope to win a membership so that I can level up my art and so that I can share more knowledge to the Filipinos.
