Jason Moss has been around the art circle since 1997. He graduated with a fine arts degree from the University of Santo Tomas and soon started work as an illustrator and then had stints as an animator, TV director, editorial cartoonist and instructor while pursuing his career as a young artist. Slowly, he became an integral part of the contemporary art scene in the country and created a body of work that is absorbing in its seeming simplicity while mirroring the private and secret worlds of his subject or even the artist himself. His figures, sometimes painted as informal portraits and nudes, have an emotional pull to the viewer and quietly exude flickers of melancholy, introspection as well as psychological and sexual desires: security, bliss, youth, body parts, physical strength, companionship, sexual fantasies and freedom—all absurdly rich in meaning. His paintings are executed so confidently and technically that they also reveal Moss as a skillful graphic artist from the start. Today, he continues to produce humurous and spellbinding works with varying themes that continue to excite and engage the viewers.
