I'm Vin Quilop, a freelance artist/illustrator based in Manila. I specialize in watercolor works, digital portraint paintings and graphite sketches. You can see my work through my Behance, Instagram, and Facebook accounts.
Just a brief background of what I do: I make portraits through digital media, watercolor, and graphite. My digital style evokes painterly real brushstrokes combined with modern abstract shapes, and my traditional works are mostly inspired by French en plein air Impressionistic paintings.
I've been recently invited to an international art fair (ART! Vancouver) in Vancouver, Canada to exhibit my works, next year, April 23-25. I've only recently quit my day job to pursue what is really close to my heart. As a freelance artist, I've been trying to build myself in the local arts scene and it's been going well, thus far. This opportunity is coming at a great time for me to boost my network and to expand and showcase my myself to the international arts scene. But with that said, Canada is a very expensive country to go to, and my resources are very limited. I am putting up this funding site to help me raise money for my Canada trip (I've also submitted a letter of request to other sponsors). The Artist Booth in ART! Vancouver is costed at CAD 2,703.75 (incl. TAX), I'm trying to raise this before November 1 (the registration deadline), so I can make the cut and be able to join the art fair next year.
I am really hoping that I can join the art fair as this will be a great opportunity to meet other creatives and be a representative of the Philippines. Any amount of donation will do! If you're looking to commission me for an artwork, please don't hesitate to contact me through my email: [email protected]
