From Wall Vandal to Artist of Purpose
Updated: Mar 20
I started drawing as early as 5 or 6 years old, scribbling and doodling on our walls. When I was in elementary, I went on to draw on school desks and walls. And then in high school, it was cubicles and bathroom walls, which landed me in the principal’s office for vandalism. Back then I just wanted to draw in secret but for my work to be appreciated and seen. That feeling of being anonymously famous is what made me want to pursue becoming an artist.
After high school I took up architecture to fuse my love for arts and walls. This time I was overwhelmed by a lot of people, kindred in spirit and their ideas. My concept for arts eventually changed, it is not just drawing - something deeper than becoming anonymously famous. Art should have a purpose, functionless art is simply tolerated vandalism.
Then I found Klaypel. Klaypel helps me nurture my artistic sense, and I grew as an artist and as a person. This time it is not just art. We have a purpose; our creativity will touch lives more than we can imagine. I continue my journey as an artist through Klaypel. This will be an endless journey and learning for me. As a Klaypel artist I continue painting and drawing on paper, wood, canvas, furniture, and even on skin.
And yes, I still draw on walls - murals.
