There are two creative sides to Fitz Herrera, a native of the province of Nueva Vizcaya: art and music. An advertising graduate from the University of the East-College of Fine Arts, he got into both painting and playing drums for various bands. Herrera’s figurative acrylic works that utilise impasto technique have been exhibited in various hotels throughout the country and numerous times in premier art galleries and fairs in Metro Manila. Among his accomplishments is earning 3rd place at the 2004 Metrobank Art and Design (MADE) Competition.
“To understand my work is to understand my present predisposition, which is more tranquil yet vibrant, buoyant and open, where things seem to flow naturally and seamlessly like good music that we plead not to stop,” says Herrera.
