Since then, he has been working on DIPIC as an art director for more than 25 years. He then returned to painting after the persuasion of his colleagues. “ Anong gagawin nyo pag nagretire na kayo? Basa basa lang ng dyaryo? Saka kayo magpipinta pag di nyo na kaya? These were the exact words that used to re-awaken his love for painting, that was in 2019. Since then, he has been active on local art exhibitions, physical and on-line shows.
His personal influence as a visual artist is Salvador Dali and fond on working on Surreal themes and mixed media. “Parang kulang kapag pinta lang ang pyesa ko, gusto salpakan ng mga bagay bagay”
