John Paul Olivares

16/Nov/11

I came across John Paul Olivares’ work about a year ago. He was born in the Philippines and is influenced and inspired by travelling and living with tribes and rural communities.

In his paintings, he reflects a soulful connection with the various traditional indigenous cultures and the sensibilities of the people.

Some of the illustrations are based on visions caused by reiki, they are extremely detailed and geometric (my favourite) and what’s even more amazing is that it’s all done freehand with metallic gel pens on illustration board.
