Internationally acclaimed Filipino contemporary artist, Winner Jumalon produces intriguing portraits in his string of creative pursuits. Featuring at Henry Butcher art auction for the first time is a portrait of an anonymous face concealed by a concrete marble-like slab - only to reveal his left eye and part of his nose through an oval-shaped incision – taking portraiture onto a different level infusing abstract elements into this poetic piece.

Winner Jumalon graduated with a Painting Major from the College of Fine Arts, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, the Philippines in 2005. Prior to his tertiary education, he attended the Philippine High School for the Arts at Mt. Makiling, Los Baños, Laguna, the Philippines and graduated with a Visual Arts Major (1997 – 2001).
