Aris Bagtas Profile

Ernesto “Aris” Bagtas Jr., the Genius of his Generation, a native of Obando, Bulacan has been one of the most influential artist of this times. He has not only displayed his artistic craft but has lead so many young artist to the right path.  As his family name “Bagtas” literally means “to walk the path”.  He has guided the young and upcoming artist to walk the path of success.

Aris Bagtas was first artist I met and made friends with.  He has inspired me to be a serious art collector. Even with numerous awards, exhibits and high profile art collectors on his shoulders, he is still gifted with humility and vision.  He has kept his feet on the ground.  No wonder I have a range of art pieces by Aris Bagtas.
