Winner Jumalon

b. 1983, Zamboanga, Philippines
Lives and works in Manila, Philippines

Winner Jumalon is a Filipino contemporary visual artist who graduated from the College of Fine Arts of the University of the Philippines in Diliman with a major in painting. He is known for his ongoing exploration of personal, cultural and artistic identities, and often focuses on the relationships between painters, paintings and the art world. Infusing into his works implicit elements with strong subliminal context, Jumalon’s figurative style emotionally taps into the viewers’ subconscious. His portraiture is highly detailed, rugged, and brilliantly questions the formation of identity itself.

Jumalon’s artworks have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. He was also nominated and received numerous awards such as Top 5 Finalist in Philip Morris Award ASEAN Art Competition (2005), Best Artwork for the Philippine Collegian (2003), and Face Values of Richard Koh Fine Art in Kuala Lumpur (2006).
