Jofre Nachor

Jofre Nachor is a full-time multidisciplinary painter whose works are defined by various results of interweaving realism, abstraction, figuration, and neo expressionism. Self taught, he considers himself an outsider heavily influenced by a community of artists in the 1990s called PANDAY PIRA (Pandayan ng Pilipinong Kultura), co-founded by Elmer Borlongan, Mondejar, and other masters of ABAY (Artista ng Bayan) in the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. In 1996, Nachor went on a hiatus to pursue Brand filmmaking and it took over two decades for him to realize his art onto the canvas once again. For him, art has become his salvation from anxiety and depression and centers his work on mental health awareness.
