Jun JamosmosCreative Acrylics
Jun Jamosmos would say, "...every subject I paint invokes a call to a journey that doesn't stop with and in the canvas. For beyond I see freedom..." The freedom to create and express oneself in a visual medium is liberating for him. Jun primarily paints from life, from photographs or memories of an experience with OIL and ACRYLIC as primary medium.
Jun is drawn to plain simple 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 creation as well as the complexity of it whether in a familiar scene, thing or face even a stranger's facial features.
He started to draw when he was five years old and painting became a hobby while growing up. Jun is an accountant and a selftaught artist at the same time primarily by brooding over art books and magazines, visiting art museums and galleries. He has studied the technique of his favorite Swedish master painter Anders Zorn.
He moved to Stockton, California from the Philippines in 1995 and settled down with his equally talented wife and two children. He is a regular at the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery and the Art Expressions of San Joaquin and continues to do art commission work, including large mural projects. He is also being represented by the Agora Gallery in New York City and will be a part of a group exhibition in July 2015. He is willing to give back to the Stockton community what it has given him through various opportunities showcasing his artwork in different communityoutreach avenues. He has also painted live on stage, and offstage to the inspiration of music. He has conducted art workshops for beginner and advanced painters of all ages.
Jun's artwork is enjoying worldwide exposure online through his website – www.junjamosmos.com His works are in private collections here in the United States, Asia, Australia and Europe.
