Jonas Eslao (b. 1984) lives and works in Manila, Philippines and has exhibited extensively since 2007. His past works contained themes that thrive on the effects of human intervention to nature and investigates the contribution of cultures and economies to climate change. Recently, he has been exploring on abstract expressionism as he creates gestural landscapes using household tools. In his works, Eslao engages in an activity where the thrust shown in each painting no longer rests in the images and subjects produced but, rather, how the inner stimulus of the artist controls every loose brushstroke and every spontaneous motion that happens within. He received his BFA in Painting from the University of the Philippines, Diliman. His works have been featured at Art Fair Philippines since 2013 and at ALT Philippines.
