Dan Vincent Barotilla
Dan Vincent Barotilla is an artist that admits he doesn’t have any art style because his painting technique constantly evolves. Born and raised in Legazpi City, he cites Salvador Dali, Rodel Tapaya, and Ronald Ventura as some of the artists that he look up to.
One interesting fact about Barotilla is how he discovered his love for painting. He flipped through a calendar with paintings of national art competition winners for students and that prompted him to start his career as an artist. With his passion and skills, he won 1st place in an on-the-spot painting competition during a local festival in the province.
Barotilla believes that tokenizing physical art is the next big step artists should take, emphasizing that NFTs are the future of art.
