Graduating from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, Jerry Morada (b. 1979), made a name for himself as an emerging contemporary artist. He began his career working as artist for ProbeProductions, Inc., producer of the award-winning "Probe Team". The focus of most of his paintings is the subject of women, painted in a more surreal style. Morada has always sought to fuse elements of abstraction and figuration in an engrossing configuration of texture, color and composition.
Although trained in sculpture, the artist eventually developed and refined his skill in painting and used it to express his existing interest in history. His fascination with old photographs empowered him with a vision that was an aid to build his style.
Women subjects are dominant subjects in Morada’s works. The subjects in his works are depicted being involved in the events and activities of rural life. His works often reach the realm of metaphysics with his preoccupation with dreams and dreaming. Jerry Morada’s works encompass the style of folk art.
Jerry Morada remains a dreamer and his art invite one to follow his journey into the depths of the romantic.
