Classical Baritone singer and pointillist painter Jack Salud’s art has been exhibited widely and internationally. Since his initial entry into the art scene in 1996, when he was invited to participate in the annual invitational watercolor exhibition/competition KULAY SA TUBIG (“Color On Water”), Salud has met great reception and acclaim for his visual art.
Opening his first one-man show in 1997, Salud has since exhibited over 30 times — not only that, he was also named as one of “The Best in Philippine Art in 2005” alongside other leading artists of the time. Salud’s figures make for brilliant comic narratives — his mix of pointillist cubism and thematic whimsy giving his garbed women a distinct flair, embellishing their stylized appearances and clothing with a unique textural quality as they go about their activities.
