Jun-Jun’s recent work includes a series of portraits of Chicago men, found and enlisted as portraiture subjects through various gay networking phone apps – which has become a body of work of obscured identities.
Jun-Jun Sta. Ana is a self-taught artist born and raised in Manila, Philippines. Starting out his career in creative work as a window dresser at the end of 1999, Jun-Jun’s work evolved into fine art after toying with one of the first digital cameras out in the market, and consequently experimenting with digital manipulation. Jun-Jun has been showing consistently throughout the Philippines and the United States, and had his first solo museum show last year at the Negros Museum in Bacolod City, Philippines. He is the recipient of the Avellana Art Gallery Tower 4 Residency grant for 2011.
