Chito Maravilla is a visual artist based in Vancouver, who is originally from the Philippines. His work spans that of realist, abstract, sculpted, digital, and illustrative styles, to name a few. With a career entrenched in the arts, and the breadth of about thirty years under his belt, Chito's approach is always varied and vibrant, prolific and still humble. Reminiscent of "home" (in the Philippines), but also contending the contemporary cultures of Canadian art, the work displayed in this video serves as a reminder, more than anything else, of the colourful vision that Chito encapsulates with the mastery of his craft in the visual arts.
