Yek is a Manila-based artist who has developed a taste for art subjects that are based on biblical references.Having undergone formal training in Fine Arts, Major in Advertising at the Technological University of the Philippines, he honed his own take in Realism and Surrealism to a degree of perfection his works are known for. It is no wonder that he became a two-time recipient of the"Excellence Award" by the Shell National Student Art competition in both categories.Likewise, he participated in different group exhibits.
