Joejene Santos works have evolved from realism to non-figurative form or abstract. He sees this shift as a creative challenge in the discovery of one’s creative expression or “Creative Identity”.
He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts at the Philippine Women’s University in1996. As a student, he was actively involved in different visual arts groups and participated in various art exhibitions which further developed his passion as an artist.
He held different artist roles including art instructor, children’s art workshop facilitator, graphic artist, book illustrator and theme park designer. These jobs brought him to different places in the Philippines and the Middle East before he came here to Canada in 2006. Since then he worked his way back to painting while holding a full time job as a newcomer to a foreign country.
