Gel Jamlang

I earned my BFA in visual communication from the College of Fine Arts at The University of the Philippines in 2000. In 2012 I moved to the United States and started exhibiting my works in Baltimore, Maryland.

In 2013 I started freelancing as an illustrator. I then had the pleasure teaching a couple of semesters at the Illustration department of The Maryland Institute College of Art. 

I am currently a freelance illustrator and an art instructor at Bethesda. 

My work is inspired by surreal art. I enjoy painting portraits and objects in watercolor. My aesthetic style is influenced by the idea of simplicity and drama. 

Clients include: Reader’s Digest, New Republic Magazine, Foreign Policy Magazine, Bloomberg Markets Magazine, Guitar World Magazine, MovieMaker Magazine, Muse Magazine, Lenny Letter, Graphic Audio and private commissions.
