Fred DeAsis – Renowned avant-garde Filipino American artist, creator of “kutbayin” the innovative art style and technique based on the ancient Philippine lost art “kut-kut” and “baybayin” – the country’s pre-colonial writing system.

“I enjoy experimenting on new art techniques to present ideas whether the subject is ancient or futuristic,” the visionary artist claimed. “I recently conducted several workshops on kut-kut and baybayin. I thought it would be interesting to merge the two distinct ancient Philippine entities and call it “kutbayin” art. The encouraging response by the Lake Bluff artist group to the kutbayin preview session, provided me with an extra push to present the new art form to the public.”
