Juanito Reguya Aralca Jr. Also known as Jed was born on September 04, 2003 at Tagum City. He started drawing since elementary and has been active in joining school art-related contests ever since. By the time pandemic started, he started to feel the need to improve his skills so he started doing commissions for portrait arts. As he explored the world of arts, he met people who guided and supported him. By their encouragement, he joined a mural painting with his friends. Because of this, he got to know ‘Sandog’ a group of volunteer artists that does mural painting and other art-related works in Tagum with the partnership of its local government and joined them.

Philippines is a country with many different cultures. That is an undeniable fact. In fact we can see people with different languages, religions, and cultural practices on a daily basis. In this piece I want to show that having different cultures won’t hindrance love. Courting and dating process may be different but understanding and respect are a few of love’s most important element. Teaching your lover the culture you grew up with and you learning your lover’s culture will help you give meaning to different aspects of your lives and communicate effectively with your significant other. This process may not happen overnight but that is exactly why it is a process. You may have a lot of cultural differences and may not find anything similar to the culture you grew up with but still at the end of the day both of you has a common ground — and that is your love for each other.
