Bacolod visual artist Bethoven Tiano or “Tiano Beto” opened his third solo art exhibition at the Artfull Art Gallery in Bacolod City on July 4, coinciding with the 47th founding anniversary of the Art Association of Bacolod-Negros, of which he is a member.

Titled “What Emperors Wore”, the exhibit which features Tiano’s works in different medium, and will run for a month.

He is currently engaged with the conceptual approaches in art, and is pursuing the path leading towards abstraction and the subconscious, but never severing ties with his love for illustrations and graphics.

Tiano’s initial exposure to the artist ethos was through working with and observing AAB member Pastor Arthur Bayles and had an opportunity to illustrate a storybook written by the pastor’s wife Miriam when he was in high school.

His first solo show titled “4,000 Holes” was an exhibit of watercolor themed works at Maya Art Space, Tippy’s Bistro, while his second was “Storytellers” at SM City Bacolod.
