‘Uncommon Art’ Of Houston-Based Filipino Artist Glenn Bautista Reaches Texas Art Scene
HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 29, 2013 /Texas State Business Network/ — Prolific and extraordinary visual artist Glenn Bautista has been selected to join the exclusive ranks of Texas State Business Network as a result of his exceptional performance in the field of visual arts. Glenn has routinely exhibited the commitment, vision, and skills required to be considered among the best.
Since moving to Texas in 2009, Glenn Bautista has created over a hundred soft pastel drawings that capture, in a way that only his unique imagination can, the landscapes and life forms of the state’s suburbs and cities—Garland, Weatherford, Pearland and Houston. Published in three art books, these drawings, including those made in Colorado and California, attest to his relentless pursuit of art wherever he may be.
From his home in Houston, Glenn Bautista runs his own art gallery in the Philippines, Glenn’Studio, home to over 300 pieces of his personal artwork collection from 1963-2008. Established in 1990 as a personal project in architectural design, Glenn’Studio has served as a multidimensional expression of Glenn Bautista’s creative philosophy.
Glenn’s art—notably described by renowned art critic Alice Guillermo as “uncommon”—encompasses religious paintings in oil, sketches, portraits, lithographs and etchings, nude pastels, pencil pastel drawings, collages, soft pastel compositions, nature and technology compositions, golfscapes, zenscapes, abstractions in oil, Christian art, digital art, and heaven and earth oils. He currently sells his recent artworks and also accepts works on commission.
Throughout his career as an artist, Glenn Bautista has exhibited his works in various galleries and museums in the United States, Europe and Asia, including the Cultural Center of the Philippines; National Museum of Singapore; Galerie Art 204 in Düsseldorf, Germany; Brooks Institute of Fine Arts Gallery and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, both in California; and the Firehouse Gallery & Art Center of the Weatherford Art Association in Texas.
Around Texas, Glenn is often invited to give a talk about art while his works are on exhibit. These ‘Art Talk/Exhibits’ have been held at the Parker Williams Library, Southpoint Club House, and the Houston Trinity United Methodist Church where he was also guest speaker for the Easter Sunrise Service. Recently, Glenn has also been invited to talk about his miraculous healing from Stage IV colon cancer at the Covina Community Church in California.
Despite acquiring a vast part of his expertise through professional experience, Glenn Bautista also built a solid academic foundation that includes his Certificate of Fine Arts from the University of the Philippines and Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts from the Brooks Institute of Fine Arts in California. He additionally studied lithography under Professor Rolf Sackenheim at the Staatliche Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, Germany.
