Omi Reyes has come a long way as an artist from starting his painting career as a textile painter in early 1980’s to slowly becoming known as a versatile painter dabbling with new techniques for different painting genres. Nowadays, his works center more on modern realism. In the early days of his career, he painted floral designs on diaphanous and gossamer material to accessorize fashion. Fresh from college back then, he didn’t have much of a choice as he had to find a steady source of income. His artistic soul, however, hungered for venues that can really showcase more of his creativity and celebrate the way he views the world around him through art.
