Visual artist Subhelic

I am Subhelic, a visual artist from Ormoc City, Philippines. I just recently graduated college with a a degree in Advertising and am taking a break to make art before I find work.

I paint about the things that my mind wanders off to, and that is usually the hurt, the sorry, the longing. I've had plenty of people say that there is a certain sadness to the things I make, and I've come to accept that sadness is a necessary part of my work. Currently, I am making things more personal.

I've always wanted to come up with a big body of work in traditional media, and now I have begun.
