The Philippine term for Plantain, a series in hommage from the simplicity of life when the I was a child, when a simple and humble banana enjoyed together with my sibling coming home from already brings joy to my life. Those times where I didn't know that there was an Eifel tower in Paris or a Cristo Remeptor in Rio de Janeiro, times where I didn't know there was a complex world out there other than my little city where I grew up. Those times when I only played and was careless and did not have to worry about paying taxes worry about adult life. Those childhood memories.
About The Artist
Racso J. (Racso Jugarap) A self-taught artist from the Philippines who has always been fascinated with creations. Growing up to be the youngest son of a jewelry crafter, Racso had already been exposed and seen playing with the tools in his father’s workshop, creating toys, or making a very intricate school project. Later on, while studying Hospitality Management, he had already been commissioned to do pieces for hotels and business establishments.
He was given an opportunity to travel around the world working as a chef and to see the beauty, energy, and culture the world has to offer. Now living in Belgium and having to experience firsthand how art has been part of most people's lives, inspired him to share his art with the public that has been kept hidden for so long. Curves have been always an element in his works. For him, curve shapes express fluid movement and it could be dynamic. It depends on how much the curve is in the object, the less curve the calmer.
