Jose Tanig Joya (1931-1995), National Artist of the Philippines
Along with Napoleon Abueva, Joya was the first among his countrymen to ever exhibit at the prestigious Venice Biennale in 1964. Joya became dean at his country’s most competitive fine arts college, and is held to this day in high regard as the “father of Philippine abstract expressionism.” His artworks have appreciated in price by as much as 287,500 percent from the 1970s to the present.
