Jomar Delluba

Coming off several well-received events, PANGIL, Laguna-based artist Jomar Delluba may be one of the most sought-after artists in the country today, with a waiting list of patrons eager to snap up his works. They recognize an artist who is thoroughly engaged in his practice and how he relates it to the consequent imagery that in inevitably represents using a consistently fascinating, quirky, and highly-technical aesthetic style.

Jomar Delluba's practice is one of excruciating detail within a highly-developed technique. After a year of learning drafting technology in college, he started joining and winning drawing contests in his province of Laguna. It wasn't long before he started apprenticing under renowned surrealist Jerry Morada. Delluba has since gained numerous recognitions, which include him being named Juror's Choice at the GSIS Painting Competition.

His 2017 exhibition represented a new direction for Delluba, who is better known for his whimsical figurative paintings of dancers and ballerinas. Though his figurative work is in very much in demand, the artist has courageously chosen to chart a different, thought-provoking course. His new series is decidedly more cerebral, invoking questions of the nature of light, space and object, and the relationship between light and form.

His new paintings of prisms and crystals, against a neutral, earth-toned background, are explorations of organic geometry. Each painting focuses on singular hues, that bend and mirror light giving them a heavenly glow. The overall impact on the artist’s practice is a deeper oeuvre that showcases an intrepid range, as well as a keen intellect.
