He graduated high school from San Beda, earned a law degree from Ateneo, partly to oblige his lawyer-father, but desisted from hurdling the bar. Instead, fired-up he studied art at U.P. without earning a degree. He painted, doggedly, assiduously, turning out canvass after canvass. Unhappy with the rote of academic traditional painting, he painted his own way nevertheless. This seduced him to be bold, an unknown painter showing his wares, for the first time at San Beda College Hall. He showed his artistic prowess in portraits, a better offshoot than his early master Amorsolo. It was 1953. He was 21 years old: the debut of a future master.
