Fernan Escora Defines what a Great Artist is

Growing up with his art is already Fernan Escora’s way of living. In fact, after his graduation from the University of the Philippines in Diliman where he pursued his degree in Fine Arts, he never took on any conventional daytime job. Back then in college, he was already doing his exhibit and at the same time he was working part-time living the life of a true artist—starving, with his earnings not even enough to buy a decent meal and a place to live.

Drawing was His Companion

Escora could remember that he drew several hours a day, almost each day.

In an interview, he reveals, “Drawing became my pastime when I was in college.

“I do not have many friends then. My life’s different from common students who were comfortable because they get allowance and support from their family. So, I am always alone. Drawing became my companion. I drew almost every time on my free time in school. Drawing became my friend.”

He admits that back then, he wasn’t that confident with his drawing. Like any friend, he nurtured his relationship with his craft. His drawing was his only sounding board.
