He is a freelance artist who uses charcoal and acrylic as a medium for portraits and graphic layouts. According to Basalo, realism is the style that he now practiced and developed, and his artistic expression and desire emanate from his emotions. Basalo is thankful for the opportunity as th is is an excellent initial step to enhance his skills and even integrate them into his current academic undertaking in library and information science.
