Filipino pyrography artist Jordan Mang-osan, creates beautiful artwork, which he calls “solar drawings”, by harnessing the power of the sun to burn images into a wooden canvas.
Jordan Mang-osan, is an award-winning Filipino artist, he draws upon the culture, history and environment of his native Cordilleras region and of the Igorot people (of whom he is a member).
Mang-osan’s patience and skill is evident in his artwork, as he must carefully and accurately manipulate the magnifying glass and focus solar heat in order to etch each intricate detail of his drawings onto wooden boards.
Mang-osan’s works takes several months to complete.
Though he calls his work “solar drawings”, it is actually more known as “pyrography art”. His methods/Style and the results, are just stunning!
You can often see his signature in the the left or right bottom corner of his work. Some are not very noticeable.
Mang-osan really knows just how to use his giant magnify glass in order to create even the smallest of details of his works. And he also knows how to endure the hot tropical sun (that is also amazing)
Jordan Mang-osan’s artwork can be purchased through Fine Art America, or you can also travel to the popular tourist destination where his incredible art colony is situated in Tam-awan Village, in the City of Baguio, Philippines.
Did you notice the faces in the two landscape artworks above? (check again if you didn’t :))
What is more amazing besides his unique talent, is that he showcased his hometown, people and country into his art!
