BAGUIO, JOSE YAP
Born in Zamboanga on April 15, 1959. He studied Architecture at the University of Visayas and graduated in 1977. He grew up in Cebu, where he learned painting from Rudy Cerna. Baguio's works are reminiscent of the luminous style of the Hudson River artists. He paints hyper-realist renditions of pastoral scenes, old Church atlars, orchids, and rice harvests.
