JUN JAMOSMOS FINE ARTwww.ArtPal.com/junjamosmos
Jun’s favorite media include oil, acrylic and watercolor. In either of these versatile medium, he approaches his still-life paintings with a broad, down-to-earth touch, grouping objects in scenarios that convey warm and comfortable domesticity. Simplicity in his composition resonates who he is - a minimalist in most aspects of his life.
Jun is drawn to simple and plain objects. But more than what meets the eye, he paints to find and depict deeper meaning in his subjects. His inspiration stems from the beauty of God’s creation and the wonder of His mighty love for us. Jun tries to reflect the grandeur of His creation by painting the simple and common things in life. He echoes the uniqueness and individuality of how each one of us was created differently, in the warm earth tones of his paintings.
Originally from the Philippines, he started to draw when he was five years old and painting became a hobby while growing up. Jun is a self-taught artist by brooding over art books and magazines, visiting art museums and galleries. He has studied the techniques of international master Swedish artist Anders Zorn.
He moved to Stockton, CA from the Philippines in 1995. He has joined and sold his work in various art shows in the Central Valley. He is a regular at the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery and continues to do art commission work and conducts art workshops both for kids and adults. He was represented by the Agora Gallery in New York City in 2015 and 2016. He was chosen as one of the 2016 Master Artists for the Art Tour International Magazine and was featured in the publication for two consecutive months
Jun primarily paints from life, from photographs or memories of an experience. For him, every subject he paints invokes a call to a journey that doesn’t stop in the canvas or the frame. His body of work are mostly portraits – challenging, complex and colorful as human nature itself. He also paints landscape and still life. He is also a performing artist doing live paintings on stage during concerts, conferences, fundraisers and events. He has been conducting wine and sip events in the last four years and have been invited to fundraisers to do painting sessions with the invited guests.
Jun is married to an equally artistic and talented thespian, educator and full-time mom. His family always comes first over his painting but managing his time can be a juggling art by itself. He has his hands full with two kids – an 19- year old and a 15-year old, while working as a full-time artist.
Jun’s works are in private collections here in the United States, Asia, Australia and Europe.
