Ennsar Luis J. Modelo, or Elmo as he is fondly called, now a resident of Bulacan, grew up until he was about 3 in Baguio before moving to his mother's province. He learned to appreciate the arts when his parents introduced him to this thriving community of artists, musicians, and performers.
At this very young age of three, his parents realized that there was something to this kid's potential as an artist. It was observed by his mom that Elmo, while still mumbling his words, was able to memorize and recognize colors and their names accurately, aside from his daily doodling on his sketch toy and tinkering with random subjects.
Elmo today is still at the very early stage of his artistic journey. Cradled and trained by Baguio's finest talents and the most conducive environment for budding artists, while keeping positive and hopeful, as his parents reflect, he is on the right track. This young boy works on different mediums—he paints, sculpts, and creates a mixed media artwork made of junk and trash.
The internet and the workshops he attends all over the country made everything possible. He already received accolades for his works in school; now in his second grade in elementary school, he has participated 17 times in group exhibits with masters, multi-awarded artists, and fellow budding artists, being the youngest exhibitor at the age of 6.
