Ronald Gonzales
Roland Gonzales

Roland, commonly known as ‘Olan’ never knew how special Batanes was until he visited Manila as the 1st Ivatan to be offered a full scholarship at UP Diliman in fine arts.

He writes, “the majestic mount Iraya, the verdant hills, fresh air, the seas and its beautiful people. They are all part of my life. I was born on the 31st of January, 1978 in Basco, the capital town of Batanes. My parents, Marcelino Gonzales and Irene Gonzales are both native’s of Itbayat, the northernmost remote island of the Philippines. I am the 8th and youngest son of 10 siblings, 6 boys and 4 girls. My father is retired as a government employee and now helps my mother with her handicraft business.”

Olan comes from a long line of talented indigenous artists. His mother has been recognized as one of the master indigenous basket makers of the Philippines by the Cultural Center of the Philippines and his genius in realism emerged very early in life. Stories of his painting talent as a child are legend in his hometown, from the time he painted Jesus while he was temporarily struck blind and in the hospital, to the detailed architectural sketches he produces with no training on wood boards when asked to help design the 1st Ivatan gallery, Even his scrabble score is exceptional, routinely scoring over 300 although English is only his 4th language, after his native Itbayatun, Ivatan and Tagalog.

Although he dropped out of University twice due to cultural pressures, he has a standing invitation to return should he ever wish to leave the beauties of Batanes for the pollution of Manila. Dr. Francisco Patat of the College of Anthropology hired him as an artist during his brief stay in Manila and famous visual artists such as UP CFA professor Jerry Tan and National Artist Mauro Santos (Malang) have encouraged his art. He has won many awards and accolades for his painting, including 1st place in the Pacita Abad Foundation, OSY division last February, 1st Prize in the Regional Level for DTI Consumer month and 3rd in the logo making contest for KSK, a local health foundation.

Olan writes, “Whenever I was in Manila, I always wanted to go back home as soon as I could to my native land, Batanes. Now with the help of the Pacita Abad and Kalinawa foundations I can see my dreams realized, a circle of Ivatan Indigenous Artists that will paint itself towards the Art World, yet remain rooted in our history and culture. We will show the world the beauty and art of our land, our people and our culture. This way I can repay the life and inspiration that Batanes has given me. I dream of Batanes as a world in balance with man and nature.”

Teresa Gordo
Teresa Gordo

Teresa is a young artist of Ivatan descent on her father’s side and Ilocana on her mothers. 19 years old, she is a 3rd year drafting student at Batanes State College. She speaks Tagalog, English and Ivatan fluently. Her preferred medium is acrylic paints, however she is exploring oil, watercolor and pastels. She usually paints in a combination of realistic and abstract styles and has a strong sense of color.

In her own words, she “loves to paint where my eyes don’t get bored in colors. I just began painting in 2004 and I don’t know if I’m any good,” she notes modestly “but my aunt Auriele Loreto and my brother Virgilio Gordo are both good painters, so I woke up one day and decided I wanted to be like them, so I joined the painting class in school and discovered my talent.”

Teresa’s first paintings sold immediately, and continue to do so today, despite the strong competition from the other talented artists of Batanes and during her first entry in the Pacita Abad Painting Competition in February 2006 she won 2nd place in the College Level. Her gifts also led to her being hired as one of the first indigenous youth arts trainers by Margarita Certeza Garcia, a US Fulbright Scholar based in Basco, Batanes to develop children’s arts for livelihood. Teresa was promoted to be a lead trainer for the remote island of Sabtang where she led a group of 4 other trainers in a summer elementary school training program. As a student she hopes one day of being able to afford going to a better known school for the arts, but is staying in Basco to work to help her brothers and sisters finish school. As an artist, she dreams of sharing her life with others through painting and hopes one day to be well known for her art.

His favorite medium is oil and acrylic although he has also used watercolor, pastel, colored pencils and mixed media in his work.

Xavier’s painting attempts to reveal the richness of colors rendered in daubs of paint on canvas, techniques popularized by well-known impressionists. He is also a surrealist and paints the richness of Ivatan culture and tradition in the surreal world.

One of Xavier’s goals is to show to the world the rich and unique culture and tradition of Batanes, the stunning landscapes, seascape and the wonderful people who make up his home.
