Without any formal training in art, he has moved Filipinos to tears with over a hundred of his artwork that include an unconventional Last Supper scene, “Hapag ng Pag-asa,” where Jesus dines with street children.
Drawing strength and inspiration from his own life, Joey Velasco shares the message of his pieces to Cheche Lazaro this Wednesday on ‘Probe Profiles.’
Velasco, a businessman by profession, looks back at how a life-threatening illness led him to become a full-time artist. His family and closest friends, including TV personality and fellow ex-seminarian Kim Atienza, describe how his physical condition turned out to be life-changing as well.
