Multi-disciplined Bacolod artistBeto Tiano now focuses on visual arts. His works are on display at the Art Rules exhibit at SM City Bacolod until February 4, 2018 for Bacolod Arts Month. The Bacolod Arts Month is our city’s celebration as part of the National Arts Month (NAM) of the Philippines.
Bethoven “Beto” Tiano is a Bacolod artist who has dabbled in painting and sketching all his life. He is also a musician who plays different instruments. But he has now focused his heart, energy, and ideas to create his impressions.
Though not exactly fitting his profile, Beto had been with the Civil Service Commission for the last 19 years. He only left government service recently to focus on his art.
Looking back though, Beto thinks that working in a boxed eight to five office job may not have been so bad after all. Most people with creative temperaments would find it hard to settle in routine work, as they need fresh ideas constantly. But the sheer boredom of the ordinary might have been the creative motivation that his artsy pants needed in order to produce some of his best works.
