After finishing an arts program in college, Remonde did not continue his bachelor’s to work in an animation studio from 2007-2010. He later on formed a clothing company with 2 colleagues called POP ART in 2010. This eventually helped him to pursue his studies; he received his BFA in the University of the Philippines, Cebu in 2014.
Remonde’s fascination with western cartoonography as a child, his tenure in the animation studio and his clothing line have collectively brought about a unique visual commentary that is focused on his character, Juan Kugihan- A karabaw in anamorphic form. Often referred to as “the beast of burden” for how it is relied to work incessantly, an atribute in which Remonde relates to. Birthing a portrayal of personal narratives representing socio economic identity.
Remonde often challenges himself with new techniques and material which is rarely seen in an artist with strong illustrative imagery. His bold and fine strokes blur the lines on where his strokes end and silkscreen craft begins, yet his pull towards experimentation is evident, from stockings to assemblages and tie-dye canvases. Remonde continues push and explore yet manages to maintain a purist form of imagery is something that can only be brought about by a compilation of innate exploits. Remonde lives and works in Cebu, Philippines.
