My name is Natassja Velasco, 17 years old and a sophomore art student from Philippines, namely, University of Santo Tomas; College of Fine Arts and Design-specializes in watercolor and digital arts. University of Santo Tomas-CFAD is currently celebrating its 400th year anniversary.
I created this artwork of Seexeng, because he and his artwork have served as an inspiration, not just for me, but for many of us aspiring artists. He came from humble beginnings, and now grew tall and upright; not only in his skills, but in his ability to capture and preserve the essence of his culture and his people-explains the tree that is Seexeng, the artwork that he creates grew and weaves into a beautiful cloth.
