BUTUAN-based artist Kit Gresos has embarked on a two-month tour of four of his bas relief works in Cagayan de Oro City. From Capricho Café in July, the aptly-named Handuraw exhibit traveled and stayed at SM City Cagayan de Oro throughout the fiesta month of August.
Gresos, a young Mindanaoan visual artist, scenographer and graphics designer, graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Information Technology in Father Saturnino Urios University in 2015.
He has not been in any formal education on visual arts but bringing with him his fondness of mixed media since he was young, he found excitement doing explorations on papier mache where he believed was his first step that served as an eye opener in his artistic world.
In 2007, Gresos had his first exhibit on bas relief in Butuan City and was followed by a series of local and national exhibits in Davao, Bukidnon, Manila, Germany, Singapore and Italy along with other artists.
Currently, he is working as a creative director on a local station in Butuan City yet still pursues his craft and first love which is art.
“I was inspired by the richness of culture and history in Mindanao for real, as an artists, we are storytellers too, in my own way. Through arts, I was able to tell people our unspoken culture, our, our epic historical accounts, our flamboyant tradition that made us Mindanao,” Gresos said.
