Samar student uses fern leaves to create portraits - Manila Bulletin
Making use of large fern leaves known to Warays as “salikupkop”, Ryan Rio-Legatub Managaysay uses his imagination and skilled hands to transform his art medium into a leaf portrait of known personalities that doesn’t miss a heartbeat.

Ryan who hails from Tarangnan, Samar is a second year Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education – Social Studies student at the Samar State University.

Ryan’s professor, Jhonil Bajado discovered Ryan’s talent and posted it on social media.

Bajado said he already knew that Ryan had a knack for creating using visual arts as he had done some artworks for their school activities in the past.

“His first leaf art was a portrait of mine. He was not confident to show it to me at first, because he did not consider it worthy (of) my attention, he said. In fact, I saw it in his ‘My Day’ post first, before he sent it to me via Messenger upon my request. Knowing how unassuming this kid is, I know he was just hesitant to show the artistic work of his hand,” Bajado shared.

Bajado describes his student as a timid 21-year-old, who came from a humble family. His commissioned artworks have allowed him to help augment their family’s income.

Bajado said he asked Ryan to do artworks of people, who influenced him as a person, and as a student, or other personalities he wished to bring to life through his leaf artworks.

“I was dumbfounded with what he sent me. He was able to do 2 to 3 artworks per day…I cannot help but be overjoyed with his God-given talent and share it with the world,” he added.

His artworks have included portraits of Pope Francis, President Rodrigo Duterte, Senator Manny Pacquiao, Mayor Isko Moreno, Boy Abunda, Samar 2nd Dist. Rep. Sharrie Ann Tan, among others.

“These artworks are, to me, a symbolic representation of the Bisayan resilience and the Filipino artistry, who are always able to find good vibes despite life’s adversity,” Bajado said.

Bajado aims to share Ryan’s artworks to help the local artist grow and realize his full potential.
