"Art is a discovery of who we are within and the greatest that we will be."
Self-discovery as the one true purpose and joy in life, has always been the subject of Joejene's works. Discovering the beauty and wonder of the existence of life and nature fuels his creative process. Joejene’s artistic practice springs from consciously engaging in and feeling the moment of creation with a sense of joy, wonder, and curiosity like a child discovering life. His medium acrylic and mixed media on canvas translate these artistic ideas into abstract paintings with his unique style and skills at rendering rich colors, textures, and depth.
Born in the Philippines where he earned a degree in Fine Arts and practiced his artistic passion professionally, Joejene is now making his mark as a contemporary abstract artist in the Ottawa art scene. He has held numerous exhibitions in Ottawa and Toronto since moving to Canada with his family in 2006. His work is currently represented by Orange Art Gallery and Le Salon Art Club Galerie.
