About Maria Pureza Escano

“Pure, unassuming, soulful, her works give the viewer a glimpse of life’s simple but profound essences. What we like about Maria’s art is that it reminded us of what real art should be. Her art do not seek to impress through painstakingly studied techniques but are nevertheless impressive because they seem to spring spontaneously from an irrepressively hopeful heart. Viewing her art rewards one’s soul with new inspirations to see beauty in even the most ordinary of life’s occurences. And we leave with our spirits refresh eager to see the way her heart’s eye sees the beauty of life’s moments.”(The Art Catalyst – New York, July 14, 2009).

Maria Pureza Escaño is a self-taught artist from Sariaya, a beautiful town in Quezon Province in the Philippines. She started painting at the age of nine after seeing a coffeetable book on the French Impressionists. She sources her inspiration from having grown up in her hometown, with its landscapes both colorful and dreamy and its culture rich and vibrant with its Fil-Hispanic-American infusions.

Escaño’s figurative art is characterized by soulful and lighthearted subjects and scenes which are reminiscent of her classical and impressionist exposure while her surreal art features evocative dreamscapes in vibrant patches of colors either in languid almost sinuous brushstrokes or in geometric stained-glass-looking shapes – a style uniquely her own yet universal in appeal.

Although very active in her artistic endeavors, she does not see herself as a professional artist. “I do not see art as work. It is rather an answer to that need in my soul to reproduce how I see things with my heart’s eye… the need to hold something raw and use it to express how the wonderful things in God’s good earth move me. Art is my praise to God.”
