An artist, basically, needs a canvas and brushes to make art, and typically, it’s how paintings and any form of visual expression should be; but to one of the rarest artist known in the Philippines, a canvas and paint brush is not needed in any way because when the sun shines so brightly, that’s when he creates his masterpieces.

Meet Jordan Mang-osan, a 49-year-old a Filipino Indigenouism artist who only uses magnifying glass and sunlight to create artworks known as pyrography drawings. Pyrography is the art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks. Mang-osan is an Igorot from the Cordilleras who stays true to his roots by working with raw indigenous materials and focusing on matters that celebrate the rich heritage of his people and his country.

What an amazing talent he has! Other than making his masterpieces, he is one of the founders and current president of the Chanum Foundation, an organization founded in 1996, which aims to create an artist village in the middle of Baguio City. Chanum Foundation has since become a hub for art and a studio for budding artists all throughout the country. H/T: History Channel
