FLASH! JAVY VILLACIN

JAVY VILLICIN (Jose Villacin Jr.) graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree major in painting at the University of the Philippines Diliman in 1980 and was a British Council, Byam Shaw School of Art, London fellowship grantee in 1988. Currently, Villacin holds a professorial chair at the fine arts program of the University of the Philippines in Cebu City.

For a time Villacin was in hibernation in his craving to achieve the “shambala” (an advanced plane of awareness and spirituality.) Never losing his state of consciousness, Villacin came out triumphant and rejuvenated from his astral wanderings. His canvasses continue to exhibit impressions and expressions from his foray into the dream world; composite, organic, anthropomorphic or vegetal forms.

But the basic elements of a Villacin artwork are the drawings. There are these usual pencil backgrounds which are far from being the fine or final cleaned up drawings that rejoice the diffidence, the bravado even, in some cases, the pandemonium of drawing. Together with drawing, Villacin also utilizes the array of techniques possible with his favorite medium; acrylic. Of these, layering is the most perceptible. This provides the spatial and, even, tonal texture to the works.
