Santiago Bose, Santi to his many friends, was the Philippines foremost painter of various disciplines (often using various indigenous media and materials in his paintings) from the Seventies until he passed away sudddenly in Baguio in 2002. "He was brave, infinitely creative, intelligent, humorous, personable and passionate. His overwhelming personality was linked to his artwork and his life in art, which for most of us will be his main legacy. His personal energy and vision led to the founding of the Baguio Arts Festival which he presided over in a loose but focused way for most of its long and successful life. He put the hill town of Baguio on the arts map. Throughout his life he led other arts communities to new projects, in the Philippines, here in Australia, in North America and elsewhere." (by Allison Carroll at Artlink)
