About Me

Santos Oyan

Digital and Visual Artist

 

A visual artist from Baguio City, believes that recreating Cordilleran Culture in a blank canvas is the best way to preserve culture.

“Nothing is permanent in this world,” he says. “Everything will soon go away and nothing will be left behind.” His artistic journey started in high school as a hobby which later on grew as a passion for preserving the Cordilleran Culture. Just like how every artist has their own calling, he realized his when he found himself empty, entering college as an I.T. student.
He dedicated his skills and talent to Tam-awan Village, a venue for local artists in Baguio. Since he embraced his path into the creative world, he creates artworks portraying Cordilleran Culture, while digging into it deeper through his studies.
