Peter Cordova (born 1966)
Peter Cordova was born in the Philippines and has been working at Creativity Explored in San Francisco since 1996. He often uses marker and acrylic or watercolor to depict images from his memory of growing up in the Philippines and he combines these with scenes from his imagination. His vivid human and animal images have a tribal art quality, with their jagged lines delineating geometric forms. He uses lines of varying weight to outline the objects and figures in his complex compositions, and gravitates toward earth tones when adding color. Cordova also works with ceramic art, carefully etching lines into his clay forms, which echo the line quality found in his drawings. Cordova is a prolific artist and is very involved in marketing his work to gallery clients.
