Inspired by the rich cultural traditions of his native region in the Mountain Province in the Philippines, Jordan Mang-osan has been practicing art since the age of 19. He is an Igorot from the Cordilleras and holds true to his roots by working with raw indigenous materials. His patience and skill are evident in this series of solar drawings. Mang-osan steadily holds a magnifying glass to create pyrographic etchings in wood.
Mang-osan’s art has earned him numerous awards and he has been exhibiting his creations internationally since 1993. He is one of the founders and current president of the Chanum Foundation, which began in 1996, to create an artist village in the middle of Baguio City. It has become a hub for art, spreading it to larger audiences and a studio for budding artists all throughout the country. Follow Jordan Mang-osan on Facebook. His work is available for purchase on Fine Art America.
