ARTIST PROFILE

Jordan Mang-osan is an Igorot from the Cordilleras who draws inspiration from the rich cultural traditions of the Mt. Provinces where he hails.

Mang-osan started with his journey with the arts at the age of 19 with pieces depicting Cordilleran subjects using raw indigenous materials on acrylic on canvas, mixed media, pyrography and solar drawing on various surfaces such as handmade paper and wooden panel.

In 1996, he started to help build Tam –Awan Village and Chanum Foudation standing as one of its founders with the aim to create an artist village in the midst of Baguio City which will feature the culture and way of life of the highlands.

At present he is now the president of Chanum Foundation and heads the Tam – Awan Village Artists armed with the mission to bring art to a larger audience as well as become a haven for budding artists all over the region and the country.

Mang-osan stays with his family at Bayabas Pico, La Trinidad, Benguet, where he grew up and still creates his unique art pieces while joyously taking care of his first grandson.
