1. Fitz Herrera
Life for this visual artist and musician from Caloocan may be summed up into having the best of both worlds: growing up in the disparate environments of rural and city life and pursuing his passion and innate talent in music and the arts. A Metrobank Art Awards 2004 placer, he is known for his distinctive art style that encapsulates the dualities in his life, his reflections, triumphs and pains with much candour and sincerity. With every brushstroke and canvas finished, he hopes to bring inspiration and a positive outlook in life.
