Associate Justice Jorge Bocobo Mural & Stamp '68-71

Created on:

1st January 1968

Size:

10"x15"

Mediums:

oil on canvas

Description:

I was an art student at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, CA, U.S.A. when I received a much awaited letter from my dear mother "Enyang" bearing a stamp that seemed quite familiar to me. Not too long from viewing it, I realized that it was a stamp print of the huge mural Dean Abad Santos and Atty. Israel Bocobo of the U.P. College of Law commissioned me to do for the late Justice Jorge Bocobo library. I wrote to them a bit complaining why they did not get my permission to print it into a stamp. It was one thing that I was paid for doing the mural but another for printing it into a stamp, I wrote. Because of my letter to them, I was sent the necessary peso amount in check and this first day issue copy of the stamps printed in P.15 centavo and P1.00 peso denomination stamps. Since then more requests for my art for stamps came in - - the Integrated Bar of the Philippines and the United Nations stamps to mention a few. My inspiration while working on this mural was a line written by the late Justice Jorge Bocobo, "when the sun sets down, there shall be no resentment".

Interests and Personality

BiographyTotal and spontaneous creativity is the principle that moves Glenn Bautista, wide-ranging artist who resist tested formulas and whose prodigious work in diverse media, two-and-three-dimensional, builds a universe of striking, haunting images that continually tease and challenge the mind. If landscapes, his paintings do not have the placidity and finality of familiar land-and-sky vistas but have the uncommon quality of concealing and revealing at the same time. If abstracts, his work, never facile, pose riddles and enigmas that resist categorical answers. If three-dimensional works, they defy conventional expectations in order to extend the meaning and experience of sculpture. - Art Critic / Alice G. Guillermo / From Glenn's Biography: http://www.glennbautista.com/

Thanks for visiting my site. I am regret being so delinquent in answering these emails. Especially during 2008 when we lost a 2nd son in our family. I am just getting back to checking my website here at myartprofile. “Tread the Earth Lightly” and in the meantime.. May your day be filled with… Peace, Light and Love, Arlene Wright-Correll

Hi Glen, your work is fantastic and your out-put is amazing. How do you find time for anything besides Art ? It's not a pitfall from other artists point of view. We all wish we had the same energy or determination all the time for a large output. Keep up the good work. I'm going to go check out more of it right now. Thanks, Bartley Keith Moonsman_78
