KOBUSHER

Prints

Kobusher is a latecomer to the art world of Manila. He spent most of his career in advertising, but never lost his first love, that is painting. He studied art (painting) at the University of the Philippines, but most of his influence came from popular culture. As a child of the 80s, his visual narrative was honed by Sesame Street, Keith Haring, and Likininos running Dmc and MTV.


In 2015, he gradually withdrew from work and decided to stick to it. He felt that he had done his best as an artist during his tenure as a creative director in a top Filipino agency and thought it was time for his next career. He made a series of paintings for one show one by one. The Philippine Secret Fresh Gallery gave him his first break and held his first solo exhibition in January 2016. By the way, it sold out.
