View Lot Notes > Joya began sketching at the age of eleven. Like his other artistic peers, he was initially trained to paint in the style of realist maestro Fernando Amorsolo, but gradually became influenced American abstraction and by the emerging trends in Philippine modernism. Joya graduated from the University of the Philippines (UP) in 1953 with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art, earning the distinction of being the university's first Magna cum Laude. In 1954, through the influential assistance of Fernando Zbel, the Spanish government awarded him a one year grant to study painting in Madrid. Other similar grants were also given to Arturo Luz and Nena Saguil. After returning from Spain, Joya finished his Master's Degree in Painting in 1956 at the Cranbrook School of Art in Michigan, with the assistance of a Fulbright Smith-Mundt grant. His mature abstract works have been said to be "characterized by calligraphic gestures and linear forces, and a sense of color vibrancy emanating from an Oriental sensibility." Joya's usage of color was derived from the verdant hues of the Philippine landscape, and his use of rice paper in collages demonstrates a keen interest in transparency; as superbly displayed within East Meets West (Lot 3453)

JOSE JOYA (The Philippines 1931-1995) Tivali, Copenhagen signed and dated 'Joya, 1964' (lower left) oil on board 18 x 49 in. (46 x 123 cm) Lot Notes It has always been commented that as a gentle and calm person,Jose Joya displayed an astonishing amount of energy in his works.The artist has also been long recognised as one of the leadingabstract painter of the Philippines in the 60s. It was commented that "As a painter, his language is raw powertranslated by brush, palette knife and paint on massive zones ofcanvas and marine plywood. There were sixty-nine paintings in the1960 show, half of them in large scale which lunged at the viewerfrom the gallery walls with full emotional impact. Wherever heturned, his eyes encountered myriad, unexpected forms that clashedin tense and explosive territories where bold brash coloursinterlocked in tangled, splashed, blotched, swooshed, thrown,textured and squeezed-out skeins of paint." (Manuel D. Duldulao,Contemporary Philippine Art: From the Fifties to the Seventies,Vera-Reyes, Inc., Manila, 1972, p.60). The observation was confirmed by the artist's own words "When anidea evolves, particularly an intense idea, I try to record theidea before it flees. The pictures are done spontaneously - thecreative impulse of the moment is strapped to the canvas before itchanges its nature." (Ibid). The artist's own advice to understand his works "It's useless totry to make out familiar objects in my paintings" (Ibid, p.61).

The painting is accompanied by a certificate issued by Josefa Joya - Baldovino confiriming the authenticity of the lot. In 1958, a year prior to the execution of this work, Joya had earned his MFA from the prestigious Cranbrook Academy of Art where he studied under the tutelage of Hungarian art teacher Zoltan Zepeshy, the same professor who taught Anita Magsaysay-Ho decades earlier. This era -- the mid to late fifties -- saw Joya's early forages into the abstract and the birthing of a style that would prove to be his ultimate strength as an artist.
