The only known and acknowledged art mentor of the Philippines’ first female president and an icon of democracy, the late Corazon “Cory” Aquino was still active and kicking in sharing his love for paintings. Artist Jeffrey Consumo or JeffCon still vividly recall the late president as a prolific painter.
JeffCon famous student and the mother of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III took painting classes from him 1996 to 1999 and attended the classes weekly.
“She started it as a hobby and eventually I learned that she continuously paints even the classes under me is done. That’s passion.”According to JeffCon
For this year, JeffCon with the help of Tag Media Group where he just signed a contract for his marketing and public relations got a chance to meet another person with a Philippines presidential lineage. The grandson of former President Jose P. Laurel and a philanthropist accepted his proposal to showcase his arts inside Yup! Gallery at Ayala Malls By The Bay in Pasay.
JeffCon paintings will be up for auction and will have painting workshops and lots of activities for the young artists too at The E Hotel Makati headed by another business magnate, Dr. Elton See Tan, son of Tan Yu, the richest man in Asia during his time.
When approached, Dr. Elton Eee Tan didn’t hesitate as the paintings will be part of the assets in the lobby area where patrons can auction or buy the paintings. The E Hotel is the perfect fit as executives, Asian leaders, and diplomats are usually staying there. They might like to own some paintings of JeffCon.
