Lex has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Philippine, but still he likes to call himself “a homegrown artist from Novaliches”. He is a man with a wide range of interests: astronomy, indie/art/films, visual effects, video editing and digital art. Apart from all that, he loves observing people. But above all these carried interest is art and artistry.
Art runs in his veins, if you will–he comes from a family of artists, among them his mother Tessie, and his aunt Lydia Velasco, whom he considers one of the major influences.
Like most artists of his generation, his art is still in a state of flux, evolving as he himself evolves as a person.
