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.

Jeffrey Salon

At age 17, Jeffrey Salon started early in the arena of art competition and relying on his talent to sustain himself.  His canvases resonate both with the strain of struggle – often shown by symbols of war machines and heroes – as well as with aspirations of freedom and triumph, exemplified by the nobility and grace of beasts such as lions and horses.  While Jeffrey seems quiet and self-effacing, his creations burst with boundless energy.  And he does continue to strive and succeed, garnering awards and admiration for an amazing multi-layered style of painting that is uniquely his.
