Jordan Mang-osan, who lives high in the Cordilleras Mountains , calls his art ‘Solar Drawings.’ He harnesses the power of the sun to burn stunning images on wood.
The art of pyrography has ancient origins; but with the advent of electricity it became even more popular.
But Mang-osan does things the old-fashioned way, using only the bright Philippine sun and a magnifying glass.
His art includes sweeping landscapes and detailed portraits of people, famous and not so famous.
It can take Jordan up to a month to create just one of his masterpieces. He has exhibited in several countries and has been given numerous awards and recognitions for his work. Starting at the age of 19, he began by creating acrylic before moving on to his solar artworks.
