Magno Relojo
Magno is a Filipino-born contemporary realist painter who prides himself as being a student of the “Old School” style of painting. He is inspired by paintings that are universally timeless and have been passed down by Great Masters of the Golden Age. Mango’s paintings have a touch of contemporary fusion to present the viewer with a new visual poetry. Magno received his BFA at Feati University Fine Arts, Philippines. Post graduation paths led him toward careers in graphjg design as an Art Director for Ad Agencies, Publications and International Corporations. He also owned a wall finishing and mural painting company. These creative careers provided him the tools to think with passion and imagination. He gained professional recognition in these design based careers. Magno credits his college professor Ibarra dela Rosa for instilling the appreciation and love for the arts. He studied oil portrature under the wing of Carin Hebenstreit. Carin’s style of classic renaissance portraiture inspired and directed Magno’s growing love for technique and realism. He works out of his Latonia, Kentucky studio.
