Orville Giguiento

With an architectural background, Orville has a consultancy gig doing architectural design and 3D graphics, but the painting bug keeps pursuing him. When all things slowed down due to covid 19 in the summer of 2020, he dug up his brushes, joined painting clubs and the rest is a very brief history.

Though he does oil and acrylic and digital media, he loves the nuance and challenges of watercolor, as reflected in most of his recent works. Being self- taught, he doesn't adhere to any set rules or styles, but is in continuous exploration of the magic that is, watercolor.
