About the Artist
John Paul Antido, or Japs for short, hails from Antipolo and studied painting at the University of the Philippines’ College of Fine Arts in Diliman. Impressionistic and Van Gogh-esque, Japs’ works are lively in color and movement. By mixing traditional and modern symbols — fiestas and “natives” wearing Rolling Stones t-shirts — he is able to succinctly capture the vibrancy of Filipino culture, its hybridity, and ever-changing nature. Japs has received praise and awards for his work — grand prize in the 2005 Art Petron 5th National Student Art Competition, shortlisted in the 2011 Philip Morris Philippine Art Awards, the 2008 Metrobank Art and Design Excellence National Competition, the 2nd GSIS Annual Painting Competition in 2005, just to name a few. He has also exhibited in Laos, Singapore, Malaysia, and Denmark.
