Mastervic V. Fagtanan
A teacher and an artist, Mastervic has been painting since he was a child. His inspiration comes from the desire to express what is in his mind. For Mastervic, painting is his form of communication. Landscapes are a favorite although he is not partial to any specific style as he likes to use various artistic techniques and mediums from charcoal and pastels to oils and water colors. He draws motivation from Cesar Legaspi, the award-winning Filipino painting artist.
Born to a musician father and a teacher mother, Mastervic uses his painting talents and encourages other artists, both able bodied and PWD, as an instructor in COFFI art classes. He has worked within various artistic genres including the theatre and fine arts. Mastervic attended the Capiz Institute of Technology at UP Ilioilo and, at present, owns and manages an art gallery in Cainta.
