Javelin Jay Carlos

Javelin (Jay) Carlos paints quiet houses with slanting afternoon light that bespeak of siesta and solitude. There are no humans in his paintings. While he paints windows and doors from the point of view of a passersby, everyone seems to have vanished. The fine tracery of trailing trellises all abloom add to the air of mystery and expectancy. There is the obvious influence of Andrew Wyeth , who once influence his mentor Carlo Magno.
Jay took lesson from Carlo for two years, and was later mentored by landscapist Carlo Cea. Jay also took a summer art workshop conducted by Larry Ballesteros, a product of Philippine Women’s University in the late ‘90s. Jay is a BFA advertising undergraduate of the Technological University of the Philippines.
