Kristofferson “Sirk” Deuda

Sirk took up product design at Technological University of the Philippines (Fine Arts ) standards of academic process. And though he wasn’t able to finish his course, His drive in perusing his art life did not stop from there. With his passion to draw since he was young, he continued learning through self-study by visiting art galleries, joining workshops, symposium and other art activities. It has helped him a lot with the expansion of his ideas, concepts, principles and different visions of art.

In 1995, He met Bobby Balingit, (the Wuds) and Lirio Salvador (Intermedia / Elemento), both art enthusiasts,who held an exhibit at Centro Escolar University entitled “Society in Conflict “, an audio- visual art performance. He took part of expressing his works through paintings with the help of this event.

He also joined the band “Elemento” on 1999, founded by Lirio Salvador. Elemento is a sound art experimental avant-garde band. He played the “baby sandata”, a violin. Their instruments are made out of scrap metals, PVC tube pipes, bicycle parts and other found objects- very creative indeed.

Sirk joined an art group show at Surrounded by waters Art Space Gallery (Ortigas City), the show was entitled “ Pangunahing Udyok” ( Primal Urge on 2000 ). He shared his ideas by creating mixed media works “Who Controls your Mind? “ He joined the second art Group show “ Pangunahing Udyok” at Botanical Garden, and participated in the Art Summit in Baguio City on 2001.

When he left the band on 2003, He joined PHILTAG “Philippine Tattoo Arts Guild” and perused his passion in the art of tattooing. He is still active in joining art exhibits in and outside Baguio up to the present.
