Emmanuel Nim Profile


Emmanuel Nim

Emmanuel Nim was born in Polomolok, South Cotabato near General Santos City, on June 2, 1981. He developed an interest in art and a taste for figures and landscapes at a young age. Initially inspired by the classical masters like Da Vinci, Caravaggio, Waterhouse, Sargent, Monet, Dali, Luna, and Amorsolo. He moved to Manila after graduating from high school and started his career working as a full time visual artist, completely self-taught.

A prolific portrait and landscape artist. Emmanuel Nim’s works reflect his love for the human figures, capturing human’s emotions and deep concern for the mother nature. His paintings usually carries a message that, ‘Human as the stewards of mother earth; It’s their ultimate responsibility to protect the environment and conserve the nature; and that one cannot survive without the other.’

In 2012, he was one of the seven selected artists who painted the Philippine Air Force Mural Painting that has now permanently displayed at the Philippine Air Force Museum in Pasay City.

And just recently, Emmanuel Nim was one of the ten artists commissioned by the Erehwon Center For Arts to paint the controversial “PNP-SAF Fallen 44 Mural”.
