The Museum of Modern Filipino Art (MoMFA) begins with a dream and the land on which to build it.  To stand proudly on historic Mount Samat in Bataan, its goal is to showcase the best of modern and contemporary Filipino art and to instill in future generations an abiding love and pride in their cultural heritage.  Aside from the structure that will preserve and display the art collections, activities such as exhibits, competitions and workshops are being designed for the MoMFA dream to come to fruition. By doing all this, we acknowledge with gratitude that man’s innermost aspirations and his very ability to create art emanates from the Divine Creator Himself.


Edwin 8x13.jpg

Born in 1958 and having finished a double degree in Management Engineering and Economics in 1981, Edwin worked for various multinationals, telecommunications, food and beverage and pharmaceutical companies. After his retirement, he helped establish institutions which include a museum and charity-based schools.

While Edwin has no formal training in art, he uses techniques
learned from his uncle who was a commercial artist, from his two younger brothers who are cartoon animators and from various ad and graphic design agencies as well as film production houses he dealt with while working. 

Over the past 50 years, he has learned and created over 1,500 works in various media which include: pen and ink, watercolor, digital art, video, animation and metalwork. Among his art creations are vintage cars which he restored, modified, competed with and won awards for in national car shows.

The art themes and techniques that come out visibly in his art trace back to what influenced him most in his formative years, namely: Marvel and DC comic books, pop art, car culture art and art nouveau. He aspires one day to showcase his works in exhibitions, coffee table books and a virtual art museum.
