Jordan Mang-osan, who hails from the mountain province of Cordilleras, in Philippines, uses his magnifying glass to etch beautiful drawings on the surface of wooden boards. Drawing inspiration from from the rich cultural traditions of Mt. Provinces, Mang-osan draws portraits of Philippines’ beautiful rice terraces, his native people and scenes from their culture.
Mang-osan started his artistic journey at the age of 19 with pieces depicting Cordilleran subjects using raw indigenous materials on acrylic on canvas, mixed media, pyrography and solar drawing on various surfaces such as handmade paper and wooden panel. In 1996, he started to help build Tam –Awan Village and Chanum Foudation standing as one of its founders with the aim to create an artist village in the midst of Baguio City which will feature the culture and way of life of the highlands.
