Victor Santos (Born 1934) was born in Philippines. From as far back as he could remember he had been fascinated by art, continually drawing similar objects at home. His work, arguably, provided the collectors with what some critics feel are among the best still-life paintings in the world, and also set a benchmark for aspiring still-life painters. He was educated at St. Michael’s College where he got an art scholarship award. Santos also studied at the University of the Philippines from where he earned a degree in fine arts. After graduation, he began his career in advertising and received numerous industry awards. While working as a commercial artist in San Francisco, he was persuaded to move to Vancouver to take up painting on a full time basis, which he did in 1971. His purity of glowing colors and line gave his work a quiet beauty which American and Canadian collectors esteem. And his style of realism displays a careful attention to detail. His position as a commercial artist in Manila helped him achieve a lot of success. This is because a commercial artist must have an excellent understanding of layout, lighting and color selection to be successful and these are some of the qualities that are so important to the still life painter. However, Santos left his successful career as a commercial artist and turned his talents to the painting of florals and still-lifes in acrylic and oil. Santos became a Canadian citizen and worked from his home in Delta, British Columbia until the time of his death in 2003. Framed Victor Santos art are still attracting attention from many discerning collectors.
